Chipotles and Chill co-founders



Hello! I’m Jamie, ½ of Chipotles and Chill. Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii (Punahou ‘08!) I’m lucky to say that I still get to go back home often to see my family. I was bitten by the travel bug when I moved to Switzerland at the age of 18 for university, and now 12 years later I am happily still traveling and living abroad. Most of my time as an expat has been spent in Switzerland, but I’ve also lived for extended periods of time in Dubai and Ireland. I’ve also spent large chunks of time backpacking in Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East.

In my professional life, I am a PhD candidate in economics and I do a lot of work in the fields of humanitarianism and economic development, including working and consulting for humanitarian organizations. I am very passionate about sharing my experience with impactful and sustainable travel, and I hope you become a part of our community!



I’m Carlos, the other half of Chipotles and Chill. Mexico City will always be home to me. As a teenager, I spent a whole summer in Halifax, Canada, which sparked my interest in living abroad and learning from different cultures. I have been an expat for more than four years, three of which I spent in Switzerland, and right now based in the UK. Not only has travel widened my views of the world but also taught invaluable life lessons. I have a background in design, communications, and currently pursuing a PhD in human-computer interaction. My expertise revolves around multimedia storytelling, serious games, and flexible working practices. I’m thrilled to connect with a community of like-minded, creative people.
