The rumors are true. I’m excited to announce that i’ll be moving to Seattle in a few weeks right after New Media Expo in Vegas. The lease has been signed on our sitcomesque apartment, addresses have been changed, many boxes have been packed and I can’t wait to become an official Seattleite. I’ve been at Meshfire in Seattle for the past six months pouring all of my heart into the development of an amazing social media collaboration tool and amongst many visits for work I have fell in love with the city, it’s people and the support for technology… not to mention the food, oh lordy Jesus, the food. I’ve traveled all over the world and never found a city that fit my lifestyle and personality as perfectly as Seattle, I hope to make this place my home for many years.
It’s been quite a journey the last three years in Tampa, i’ve learned many hard lessons about people, relationships and business. Over this time amongst the good and bad, I have truly have grown into a much smarter person and honestly, if I met myself a few years ago I probably would have kicked my own ass. However, life is all about evolving and growth, I am glad to have had the time I have had in Tampa as it has made me who I am today.
I’ll truly miss those who have always supported me through all the ups and downs, those who haven’t can just stay miserable with themselves. No time for naysayers and dramatic troublemakers… more time for hard work on Meshfire, great coffee and amazing memories to be made on the West Coast.
Never let anyone say you can’t do something ever, it’s your life, take chances. This is probably the biggest, riskiest move i’ve ever made and I can’t wait to see how the next chapter turns out.
