Default Hi everyone!

Hi everyone! Chris here, from the UK.

I'm looking to move to the US (CA preferred) any time after September. I've been thinking about it for a long time, and only recently started researching. A friend put me on to these forums as a good resource.

Though I don't like using the term, I'm what some would refer to as an entrepreneur; I'm a highly skilled Technical Architect / Software Consultant (specialising in Microsoft technologies) with my own UK Ltd company. I also run a small recording studio (which includes recording, editing and producing music and voice over material) and the Editor in Chief of a recently launched online publication for game and film reviews (which is growing steadily - I aim to make this my main line of business, if at all possible).

I've spent quite a lot of time in America, visiting various states. I'm getting married to the love of my life in August and we're spending a month-long honeymoon on the US East Coast, travelling from NY to FL. I've been interested in moving my life to America for many years, mainly because both my financeé and I are interested in all aspects of American culture, and our quality of life would improve considerably.

I've already done plenty of research, so I'm very aware the process is not going to be quick or easy. It looks like the E-2 Visa would be best for me, though I'm also willing to work for a US company permanently if it comes to it, even though I have spent my life building businesses over here in the UK.

I suppose this is just an introduction - I'm sure I'll have many questions in the coming months whilst in pursuit of happiness!

Thanks Sue

I'm trying to remain positive, even though the road is going to be a long one. I'm fairly motivated though, so I'll put as much energy as I can spare in to it.
