InfoMiss was created in 2009 to catalog the journey of living with less stuff and less waste and finding more freedom.
By and large, the freedom we found from living thoughtfully was that we can live small anywhere in the world. At least, anywhere that has good internet and air conditioning!
In 2010, we decided to we wanted to move outside of the United States within 5 years. We left Santa Monica, went to Seattle for three years, followed by 2 years in San Francisco. By November 2015, we were ready to leave the US. We packed our bags, put our remaining things in storage and headed off to Southeast Asia by March 2016.
Since we started our international travels in early 2016, we have continued successfully to make low waste choices. Minimal waste choices decrease our carbon footprint, keep our life simple and our wallet happy.
To sum up, we are working, learning and traveling outside of the United States and living as zero waste as possible. I’m glad you’ve stopped by and hope you’ll follow along on our global ed-venture!

Who We Are
Bar de Briere, Infomiss
I love trail running, Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, and parkour and have a personal goal of visiting every parkour community in the world. Fun fact, I have been a successful, non-working SAG actor for more than 15 years. Green drinks are my favorite medicine and simple cooking keeps me sane. Our two amazingly different kids are educated online and in the world and lead us down many interesting paths. My best friend and overall favorite person in the world (besides our 2 kids) is my husband AndrewM. Please enjoy some of my Favorite Quotes
