Joining the Flock

On July 2nd I will be joining the flock at Twitter.

For me Design is about people. Design is a vessel that communication travels through from person to person. It tells stories. It makes lives easier. It brings people together.

Twitter is one of the most beautiful illustrations of how good design is about people. And for me, it will now be more than just the act of using Twitter but also the collaboration of designing with the team for Twitter.

I love twitter. It has made an impact on my life and the lives of so many others. I am so incredibly eager to be a part of something that has played such a huge roll in my career and my life.

The past few weeks my twitter stream has been buzzing with new and exciting things coming from the twitter team (so meta). There is a new bird and even a beautiful new HQ. I also was pleasantly surprised to find out that old friends and DC ex-pats have also joined the team. What an exciting adventure! I look forward to keeping you posted.

At the same time the transition is bitter sweet. I have been at Phase2 for a just under 3 years and the people I have worked with there have left an imprint on my heart. Back in September Jim and I moved out to San Francisco and everything about the new journey has been amazing, except being so far from the Phase2 team.

The partners and everyone at Phase2 are some of the most passionate people I have ever worked for in my whole life. They truly love and respect each other and the open source community and I am forever grateful for getting to collaborate with them on so many exciting endeavors. Work isn’t work if you are surrounded by good people. I can’t thank them enough for the opportunities they have given me; especially Jeff Walpole who brought me to Phase2. Jeff is the most authentic leader and all-around-passionate CEO I have ever had the chance to work with. Much love to the Phase2 team.
