Had a great life overseas, professionally and outside of work. I also learned some interesting stuff. For example, people used to tell me not worry because "The sun will always come up tomorrow". They were wrong. When you live in Tromsø the sun does not come up for two months actually. I also learned that life is better when people don't have to fear poverty or being overworked, when women are treated more as equals, and when its not ok for adults to physically hurt or humiliate children.
Given an offer I can't refuse in Silicon Valley I moved here on Dec. 1st, 2012. Diversity, sunshine, it has a lot to offer. Loving how the fruit and vegetables taste, the American optimism and how fluid people are in speaking English.
I play flamenco-jazz guitar and go snowboarding in my spare time. Also VJ sometimes but dont actively look for gigs anymore. Had planned to start bodyboarding when I got here but a dislocated shoulder has kept me from doing that. When Im all healed up Ill be out there again.
About dating. I had a blast in my 20's and early 30's but in the last few years I have found few opportunities to meet women, especially since I started to cut back on boozing and dancing.
So now I spend time on OKCupid because it is more fun than bars, and presents the possibilities of finding romance.
