What are the odds?

Hi! I’m David Tenser, and I live in Sweden (a beautiful country in northern Europe) in a small city called Eskilstuna. I live quite near the center of the city, close to the Tuna Park shopping center. I work for a global company/community called Mozilla, where I’m part of the marketing team. This map gives you an approximation of where I live:

The reason why I blog today is because I’d like to introduce you all to a guy I recently got to know. His name is Patrick Finch, and he also lives in Sweden (a beautiful country in northern Europe) in the same small city called Eskilstuna. Just like me, he lives quite near the center of the city, close to the Tuna Park shopping center. Intriguingly, he works for the same global company/community as I do — Mozilla. Finally, he’s part of (you guessed it!) the marketing team.

Bizarre coincidences aside, I’m truly excited about having Patrick working for Mozilla, and so close to where I live and work. The following picture gives you an idea of just how close to each other we live (I’m A, he’s B):

That’s just one mile between us! This morning my internet connection wasn’t working properly, so I took a five minute bike ride and worked from Patrick’s home office instead. When most of my colleagues and community friends are on the other side of the globe, having an IRL colleague just five minutes away is an amazing contrast.

Say hello to Patrick and pay his new blog Tuna Park a visit!
