As an American who studied in Spain, worked in banking in London, and has now started a digital business in Estonia while living in Greece, I think that I fall squarely into the category of an Accidental European. I worked for Citi in New York and London for 7 years across technology, operations, strategy and sales roles before moving to Greece and becoming the CFO of a venture-backed Greek startup. I’m currently building Epilocal, a fully digital business founded through Estonia’s e-residency, that is focused on empowering local communities through independent publishing. I’m also actively involved in mentoring startups in Athens. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in International Finance and Marketing form the University of Miami in the USA and a Master’s in International Management from IE Business School in Madrid, Spain.
