I am an ex-patriot, from the USA (West Coast, Southern California), now living in Sweden.

In 1989 I arrived here, married to a Swedish woman. During the beginning of our life together we had three kids who have now become wonderful people. We acquired a row-house, a Volvo station-wagon, and did our best to enjoy life.

Then . . . we let our life together take different directions. Unexpected? No, not really.

I returned to live in the USA for a period between 2006 and 2012. Minneapolis, Minnesota. Discovered without any real surprise that living there was nothing more than a stop between work-sites as a traveling engineering design consultant. I needed a change in my life.

Returned to Sweden in the fall of 2012 to follow-up on a job offer to continue working for the company, while living in Stockholm. The offer fell through and it was the best thing that ever happened. I walk away from my employer and never looked back.

I quickly found a new employment opportunity. And, now I am teaching product development and design at a local University here in the Stockholm region.

So, about my blog here at Word Press? Over the years I have had many hobbies. Some of them I am now preparing to share. Music, photography, travel, food, etc. And, the occasional commentary on life. You can grab some of the links to see what I have to show. Enjoy.
