OK kids, it's big announcement time. I've spent the last year setting myself up to be a writer and social media guy full time and to leave behind my career as a designer. Well, while I was in Spain, one of the pitches I'd been working on with an ad agency got an approval from our client. I've been doing social media project work for a while now, but this new one is a different animal all together.
I've been looking for an opportunity like this one for months and I couldn't ask for a better one. For that matter, I couldn't ask for a better agency affiliation than the one I have with Godfrey Design and Advertising.
I'm still involved in the design industry, just in a different capacity. I found a place where I belong in kitchen and bath and I have no intention to leave it.
Moving forward from here, a lot of what I have been doing will remain the same. I'm still writing for a couple of design sites,I'm still teaching SketchUp classes, I'm still teaching social media seminars with a design/ renovation industry slant, and I'm still a kitchen design blogger.
What's different now though is that I'm devoting myself full-time to disseminating new product news and building communities around brands, something I do better than anyone else I know.
I owe all of this to this blog and your support, interest and enthusiasm these last three years. When I started this site, the last thing in the world I was looking for was a mid-life career change. Now that it's here though, I couldn't be happier. Thank you.
