Jag är invanderar…


The purpose of this blog is to chronicle  my experiences as an American immigrant to Sweden. Here I will write about the challenges, joys, fears, trials and tribulations regarding this experience.

Invanderar: A Swedish word used as a noun or adjective used in the following meanings: Immigrant, Foreigner, or Invader.

I am a 38 year old American citizen. My first trip to Sweden took place from May of 1999 until December of 1999, where I met and eventually married a Swedish woman.  In October of 2003 we had a baby, Alexander, together and returned to Sweden in 2005.  We divorced shortly thereafter and I returned to the United States.  After several years of frequent visits I decided to return to Sweden, perhaps permanently.

I have 19 years experience as an entrepreneurial engineer and manager.  I have led, participated,and consulted for numerous technology start-up organizations including <a href=”http://www.razorfish.com”>Razorfish</a&gt;,<a href=”http://www.billeo.com”>Billeo</A&gt;, and<a href=”http://www.redfin.com”>Redfin</a&gt;.  Currently I work in construction while I study Swedish Immigrant Education and search for a job in technology.

This is my story.

It is likely that this blog will offend some readers, though I will do my best to keep it safe for work, it is not my intent to offend but to accurately describe my experience.   Conversely I reserve the right to repost, redact and perhaps mock complaints.  If you don’t like what you see, please don’t read this blog.
