Palo Alto

Sat, Sep 3, 2011

On a professional level, the last year and a half has been pretty interesting. I've been managing my own projects, doing freelancing work, did some traveling, even some classes at a university, tried to work on a lot of side projects, etc. I can't say I did everything I wanted to, but it's still been pretty great.

However, times are going to get even more interesting in the coming months.

The next chapter in my life

(Yeah I know, dramatic headline) On the coming 12th of September, I'll be moving to California to join a new startup based in Palo Alto.

I have my visa in place and I'm all set to go. I still haven't found a place to stay, but hopefully I've worked that out by the time I get there.

Given how fond of the Bay Area and the vibe in Silicon Valley in my recent trip there, this is a really exciting opportunity. It's also a bit scary to be moving to a different country and I guess you could say I'm getting a bit nervous.

The hardest part will probably be that my girlfriend, Helga, won't be joining me until the beginning of next year, but thankfully we have Skype and she'll come and visit me in November.

However, everybody I know and everybody within the company has been really supportive, so I think this will just be great.

Stay tuned for updates from Silicon Valley ;)
