From California to Helsinki: A Scandinavian Interlude
Mark from San Francisco, CA, USA and currently live in Helsinki, Finland.
1. Why did you move abroad?
I moved abroad with my Finnish wife and 2 children. We wanted to try a change of lifestyle and wanted the children to learn Finnish.
2. How do you make a living?
I recently got a job working for a Finnish start-up company called Scoopshot.com. Scoopshot specializes in “crowdsourcing” both photos and videos for media consumption. It has been a very nice experience working in a Finnish company. I am learning different cultures and working with many creative individuals and we are all working toward a common goal. They have been very friendly to me so far and they have embraced international folks now at their Finnish company.
