My new adventure…is my old adventure…sort of

zendDear Reader,

I have spent the last 14 months of my career at Pantheon. They are good people with a great product. However, when new or old opportunities present themselves, you have to give them a look.

One such opportunity presented itself about a month and a half ago. The process moved slowly because both parties had to ensure that this truly was a good idea. However, after many good meetings and conversations, I am pleased to announce that as of April 3rd, 2015, I am returning to Zend.

I feel am not moving to a new job, I feel like I am coming home. I left Zend in 2008 but remained closely tied with them. I have had – and still have – good friends that work there. I’ve done contract work for them in the intervening years, and even helped with ZendCon ’10. So it is no surprise that when this position became available, I was intrigued. This time around, my title will be “Technical Manager of Training and Certification”.

As with any job change, I will miss my old friends.  Even so, I am excited for what the future holds.

This would not have happened if it were not for my very good friend, Mr. Adam Culp. Thank you Adam for everything. I am in your debt.

Until next time,
I <3 |<

  1. I will admit to failing to be excited for you when I read the headline news – but now I have read all the way to the end, seen your new job title, and reflected on the changes that I can see in Zend even from this distance …. SQUUEEEEEEE!!

  2. Congratulations! iIm sad for you to be leaving Pantheon but that sounds like a badass opportunity. I hope it’s amazing and I’ll see you around the conference circuit (and of course you’re still in my RSS).

  3. +1 blog post approved, merging.
    That is why it is soooo important to always leave your previous positions with a good and positive vibe and respect in both directions.
