I’ve purposely been laying low in recent months due to the significant changes that I foresaw coming both in my personal and professional life.
And now those changes are manifesting themselves, so I figured I’d share.
For starters, I have decided to leave my current role as head of search for HSN and take on a senior role with J.P. Morgan Chase, working to help build their burgeoning digital marketing group. It’ wasn’t an easy decision because HSN was doing some truly innovative things within the digital space and because I made some truly great friends and built some valuable professional relationships in my tenure. But at the same time, the Big Apple has been calling me and my wife back for some time and the opportunity that presented itself was truly profound on many levels.
For those of you that are based in the NYC area, feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to connect in person. I’m a big believer in building relationships in the real world, so I’m open to grabbing a bite to eat, etc. once I get settled in. Don’t be shy! Reach out.
Also, it worth noting that I’m taking advantage of this life pivot to expand the scope of this blog. I’ll definitely continue to touch on subjects relating to digital marketing and analytics, but I will take an opportunity to branch out into other subjects that I am passionate about including but not limited to:
- programming and software development
- mathematics, statistical analysis, and quantitative analysis (I believe the cool kids call it “Data Science”)
- scientific research and experimentation
- art & philosophy
- non-profit and charitable causes
- Being a father and a husband
I’m doing this partially because I just enjoy expressing myself regarding topics beyond the bounds of my current profession and partly I believe that enriching your mind by exploring varied domains will actually help you improve both your professional and personal standing in life.
If you were only here to read about search or digital marketing, then I apologize and I hope you’ll stick around. I promise to try and keep things interesting and insightful.
