Who are you?
My name is Damon. I’m 33 and was born in the United States in the San
Francisco bay area in a city called Santa Rosa. For the last 10 years I
have lived in San Francisco which continues to be my favorite city in
I’m an industrial engineer by trade and after working for a large IT
consulting firm in the US I now work for a startup software analytics
company managing our large accounts.
I currently live in Córdoba, Argentina with my girlfriend who was born here. We rent a 1-bedroom apartment in Nueva Córdoba.
Where, when and why did you move abroad?
I’ve been living in Córdoba, Argentina since August 2013 so I only have
about a month of full time expat experience under my belt.
In 2010 I backpacked around South America for 6 months. Argentina was
definitely one of my favorites. I had only planned on staying in Córdoba
for a few days as a stop while travelling from Mendoza to Buenos Aires.
However I loved this city. I’ve always had an affinity for college
towns and Córdoba is certainly one of them featuring 7 different
universities including Argentina’s oldest and most prestigious. The buzz
and energy of the city full of (attractive) students kept me here for
weeks. Well that and I met a girl. We’re still together to this day...
