Philadelphia --> Zurich

Hi!

I've been lurking around on the board for a month now, but thought I'd finally introduce myself!

I've lived in the Philadelphia region all my life (growing up, school, work, bought a house, etc) and I've been given an opportunity to move elsewhere. I work in the information security field and my company has promoted me to work out of headquarters in Zurich. I'm super excited for this opportunity to take my life and career to the next chapter!

My hobbies include cars, motorcycles, firearms, lockpicking/physical security, cooking, scifi, computers and traveling. I love that my relocation to Switzerland will still allow me to do all of the above as opposed to some of the other countries we have business in. I will be in Zurich during the end of October to look for apartments and meet my new coworkers.

Looking forward to this new adventure!

-Robert

Re: Philadelphia --> Zurich

Hello Robert,

Welcome to Zurich! I too moved from Philadelphia in September and so far am loving the experience. I work in a similar industry to you, and can provide insight into what I've seen my first few months here. Send me a PM if you'd like to meet for a drink...but be warned, I am a New York sports fan (moved to Philly with my wife in 2002, so not a lifer like yourself).

Best,
Mike
