After close to two years working with some of my favorite people in the world, I have moved on professionally. Last week was my last at WebDevStudios.
I would like to wish Brad, Brian, and Lisa along with the entire team the best of luck as they continue to kick ass and take names. WDS is one of the coolest companies I’ve ever had the opportunity to be a part of. The entire team is brilliant and sincerely made for a great place to come and work at every morning. It was an honor to be a part of helping shape this company over the last couple of years and that is an opportunity I am truly thankful for. Along with BBL and the rest of the team, I will definitely miss the great projects, the awesome clients, but most of all, I’ll definitely miss the bad jokes on Friday Scrums. 😛
What in the world is next?
There will be a lot of Jiu Jitsu and Jeeping of course. I have a nice summer planned with the family including a Caribbean cruise which I’m jazzed about. I’ll also be competing at the Dream BJJ Orange County Championship in Huntington Beach in about two weeks, and again in Vegas this August at the IBJJF World Master Championship.
On the professional front, I have been slowly building a marketing and creative consultancy, Armeda LLC. The site itself isn’t much to look at yet, but I am very excited about the cool projects we are working on. We have been helping clients with their overall brand efforts, promotional work, SEO strategy, content/editorial services, and more, all with the premise of helping them build sustainable marketing programs. These are efforts I’ve been working on over the last year and it’s something I am very excited about in moving forward.
Along with my commitment to slowly building Armeda, I have a few other things in the works that I will hopefully be able to announce very soon, so stay tuned. Until then, see you on the mats!
