About David McNeill

As the Founder and Managing Director of Expat Empire, David McNeill is inspiring people to move abroad and helping them do it.

Originally from the United States, he’s been living abroad permanently since 2014 and has traveled to nearly 60 countries so far. David’s passion for living abroad was cultivated through his studies of the Japanese language beginning at the age of 12. He studied finance and Japanese at the University of Texas at Austin and the National University of Singapore. Upon graduating, he began his career in investment banking and then transitioned into software product management in the San Francisco Bay Area. During his first product management role, he was offered the opportunity to work at the company’s Beijing office for three months, which reignited his desire to live abroad for the long term.

Six months after returning from China, David received a job offer in Tokyo and finally achieved his dream of living in Japan. After spending two years in Tokyo, he moved to Berlin for 3 years, where he met his wife Natsumi. Together, they moved to Porto, Portugal in 2019, where they live with their cat Ariel.

As the founder of Expat Empire, David McNeill is focused on inspiring people to move abroad and showing them how to do it. David started Expat Empire because he has a genuine passion for living abroad. He left the United States in 2014 and has since lived in Tokyo, Berlin, and Porto.
