After spending my entire life of nearly 31 years in New England, the time has come for somewhere new. Somewhere my Prius won't require studded snow tires. I'm moving to San Francisco.
No, it wasn't the multi-billion dollar Mutility acquihire that you expected.
But I am going where you might expect - Apple. I'm incredibly excited to join the most important technology company of our day and help design the products that I truly believe are the best in the world.
I'm leaving a collection of great friends, family, and colleagues in the Northeast that I'm going to miss very much. Luckily we have the interwebs to keep in touch.
This is a pretty major move, the biggest life shake-up I've ever experienced - very nearly a reboot. And it's happening soon, but not before some well needed time off and an epic road trip across the country, visiting friends along the way.
"We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? ... So it better be damn good. It better be worth it." - Steve Jobs
Here's to it being a damn good idea.
