Changes

This week is my last at RareWire. It has been a great experience, and I’ll definitely miss the wonderful people there, but I’m thrilled to join the team at CaptainU. I’ll be doing user experience design and front-end development, helping to build a platform to connect athletes and coaches.

Beyond the obvious changes in employment, this also means I’ll be working from home. I’m excited for this aspect, as it’s something I’ve been interested in doing for quite a while. I’m building myself a desk, setting up my rarely-used external monitor, and I’ll probably have to buy an AeroPress or something.

I’ll also be writing code and designing full-time, turning something I’ve often done part-time or as a portion of my job into a primary endeavor. I’m really looking forward to practicing more, learning more, and creating more. While I’m primarily front-end, it’s a great opportunity to expand my backend knowledge as well.

I’ve met and worked with dozens of fantastic people, gained lots of various skills, and grown through a variety of experiences so far in my fairly brief career, and I cannot wait to continue to learn new things in the years to come. Onward!
