Hill was fortunate enough to sell his tech consultancy start-up, Sitewerks, for millions back in the late 90s. That helped him foot the bill for a 3,600-square-foot Seattle home, a personal shopper, all the gadgets he could ever want, and more.
But he became bored with wealth. He sold everything and moved into a smaller apartment. He traveled with his girlfriend and enjoyed the small pleasures in life.
And he's decided the American people should, too.
"I live in a 420-square-foot studio. I sleep in a bed that folds down from the wall. I have six dress shirts. I have 10 shallow bowls that I use for salads and main dishes. When people come over for dinner, I pull out my extendable dining room table. I don’t have a single CD or DVD and I have 10 percent of the books I once did," he writes, later finishing with, "My space is small. My life is big."
