I can finally (with sincere apologies to Zeldman and crew) talk about new developments in my personal and professional life, and I’m stoked to do so!

For the last two years, I’ve been working for GoDaddy.com as first a production designer, then as a front end developer for our ecommerce application. But for the last 10 years, my passion has been blogging, community, and content management. Over the last few months, I’ve felt that I was ready for a new direction professionally - one that would put me back in the middle of the kind of work I love - blogging and helping build blogging and community tools for cool clients. I’ve also felt that I was ready for a new direction personally - our kids are now being home schooled by my amazingly talented wife, and I want to have more time to focus on the family and helping Jodi with the up-training of little minds.

So, I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be joining Six Apart’s team of professional services developers and designers, working with some sites you may have heard of, and helping to improve blogging in general and one kick-ass blogging engine in particular.

The bonus is, I’m going to be working from home - “Six Apart Phoenix” will be my home office - which means I get back 2 hours a day that I won’t be commuting. It also means that I’ll be available more to my family, which is a great thing.

I’ve loved working with the team here at GoDaddy. It’s a fast-moving company with some awesome people, many of whom I got to work with on a daily basis, and I’ll miss them as I start on a new track.
