Moving to Oregon!

It’s with some sadness and much excitement that I have taken a new position as VP of Engineering with G5 Search Marketing.  The company is located in Bend, OR.

Tomorrow is the first day of my last week in the office at AT&T Interactive (ATTi).

It was a tough decision to leave behind the teams that I have built up at ATTi over the last two and a half years, but living in Oregon has long been on of my goals.  My step-daughter and grand sons will be four hours away, and I believe it will be easier to get my kids and extended family up to Oregon (our vacation stomping ground, growing up) than it was to get them down to SoCal.

Aaron Patterson will be taking over the ruby community relationship role that I was filling at ATTi.

Alf Mikula and JR Fent will continue to run the LA Ruby Meetup, and JR and I are going to continue to run the Los Angeles Ruby Conference.

My work with Confreaks will continue and we’re looking forward to recording and publishing the International Ruby Conference X in New Orleans.

G5 is a ruby shop and over time we will be building up the engineering team.

I’ve had a great time in Los Angeles and look forward to the new challenges in Bend.

There are way too many people to thank and to recognize, if I tried I’d only end up missing people, feel free to contact me at or
