Over the past couple of years, I’ve made some very significant changes in my life: I’ve lost over 90 pounds, significantly improved my health, upgraded my style, and made it through my first powerlifting competition in one piece. I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made, and the things I’ve achieved, but there was the question of: what next?
Well I’m happy to finally be able to publically announce the next major change: as of June, I’ll be moving to NYC to work at Vimeo as an Application Engineer!
For months, I’ve felt the pull of the NYC tech scene. Between the meetups, hackathons and tech talks, there was so much to learn and do, but just out of my reach. So when I heard Vimeo – a company I always thought would be really cool to work for – was looking for PHP developers, I had to put my name in the hat. Plus getting to work in the IAC building in Manhattan didn’t hurt either, though the temptation to make every day a Food Tour adventure might.
As excited as I am to be moving to a place as full of opportunity and adventure as NYC, I’ll most certainly miss being so close to so many of my friends and family. Thankfully I’ve gotten nothing but support and encouragement from everyone I’ve told, and I can only hope that they’ll use my move as an excuse to visit the city more often.
Now I just have to figure out how the hell I’m going to top this next year…
