PALO ALTO - A HOME I ADORE

A REVIEW OF THE PAST TWO YEARS

What is certain is that since I arrived in Palo Alto a lot has changed. Irresistibly hot blonde kale addicts taking surf boards from startup garages were expected. The "cool" was mostly imagined. I had to review my thoughts. Reality: People migrate-in (20 to 30 thousand arriving and leaving week day routines) texting non-stop, and so many of these seem unable to communicate beyond their phones.

I, at first, felt that I was in the wrong place. My mother said it was my fault. I was "in my cocoon". Yes I was. I was hiding from the rat race with hyped vaporware on the back of sad looking unicorns with funny names like MONEY and EGO. Yet NOT everything is fake in Palo Alto. In the months since I started to seek good people about town I am finding friends and have good results with my new venture: "A Blum Localization Services" in Palo Alto.

This is my home that I now adore.

OVERVIEW

I was born in Vandœuvres, Switzerland in 1970 and graduated from the International School of Geneva in 1988. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Literature from Bennington College, Vermont in 1992.

Leaving America I then went back to Switzerland. In Geneva I was to found a charity for senior citizens and to work (with a good CV available on demand) for leading firms in both marketing and SEO.

Today I run A. Blum Localization Services from downtown Palo Alto. We provide expert translation services, brand expansion services and local search engine optimization. See: Palo Alto Meetup
