My new job at Pixio!

I started working for Sorenson Media fall of 2008, and worked there until ~July 2009 when I left on an LDS mission to Cape Town, South Africa, where I spent the next two years. In August, 2011, just a week or two after coming home from South Africa, I started back at Sorenson Media. But today was my last day there. I wasn't planning on leaving, but an unexpected opportunity presented itself.

I'm taking an Android programming class at the University of Utah. It's my first time ever doing any mobile development. I'm pretty proud of my work, though, and it seems my professor must like it too. One day after class he pulled me aside and offered me a job at his little startup, Pixio. It was a good offer, and since I'm so young in my career I thought I would greatly benefit from exploring this side of software development, so I accepted it.

I'm sad to leave behind the great people at Sorenson Media, but I'm also really excited for this new opportunity to explore. Also, I'm really loving this 220ppi screen I'm typing on. I had to get myself my own computer, so I got the MacBook Pro with the Retina Display. I'm certainly no Apple fan, but I can respect good hardware. And pretty screens. I just had to say that, because I think the main reason I'm writing this is because I'm enjoying looking at text on the screen so much that I wanted to put more on it.

Also, I almost never talk about my personal life on this blog, and I don't plan on making this a habit.
