Big Changes

For years after my visit to France, I didn’t think I would be happy unless I lived in Europe. I found Boston in 2009 and fell in love with the city immediately, it’s not exactly Europe, but I’ve been visiting consistently ever since. I found a studio apartment in Brighton, a neighborhood in Boston a few minutes from downtown. It’s a perfect location for me. I hope to (tentatively) move in April 1st.

Things have been rocky at my job for a year now. A hostile manager, contract re-compete, and finding my preferred niche have all contributed to me looking for a new position. I’ve accepted a position as a delivery consultant for AdvizeX out of an office in Burlington, MA starting April 4th. My (personal) focus will be virtualization implementation with Microsoft and VMware products. With virtualization software, I can consolidate hundreds of physical servers into a finite few for customers.

I’m pursuing many dreams, and making them a reality. I’m leaving Maryland, permanently. I’ve lived in my home state my entire life (with the exception of college), and it’s time to see the world. Moving to a big city has been a goal of mine for as long as I can remember. I’m achieving professional success, as I pursue a job with few compromises and more desirable responsibilities. All of this is the result of years of hard work, I’ve earned this.

“Come on, guys, this is our time!”
