A life unlimited: Ian Usher at TEDxVienna
Ian Usher is a traveller, adventurer, writer and speaker currently based on a small island off the Caribbean coast of Panama. He was born in 1963 and spent his early years in Barnard Castle in the north east of England, before graduating with a teaching degree. It was in 2008 that Ian gained world wide notoriety when he listed his “entire life” for sale on eBay, following the separation and subsequent divorce from his wife, Laura. During the run up to, and throughout the week of this unique eBay event, “The ALife4Sale Auction” made news all over the world. When Ian decided that it was time to leave the past behind and move on to the next chapter of his life the results were surprising, entertaining and challenging. His plan was to sell everything in one big lot, keeping only one set of clothes, a wallet and passport, and to then head off to see where life’s adventure might take him next.
