Going Forth

Well, it’s been a while since I made an update around here. Sorry about that to anyone who still comes by, or has a brown line in their feed reader (hopefully it’s not brown anymore!). As always, I continually hope to post more around here, and I think now I may be able to change that, for, today begins a journey into self-employed-dom. I’ll be leaving my post at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in about a month or so and will be making a full-time effort of things over at RHM Interactive.

This certainly isn’t something that I’m doing on a whim. Ask any previous full-time employer that I’ve had and they’ll all tell you that during evaluations and exit interviews, the one theme that’s been a constant, has been my drive toward someday running my own web design/development business. I’ve gained a lot of experience and insight working for those people, and now it’s time to put that experience to use. I’m very excited that what was once just a dream, a plan, an idea, is now becoming a reality and I’m looking forward to being able to work on a host of interesting projects.

What kind of projects will I be doing do you say? Well, my 9-5 focus over the last three-and-a-half years has been client-side code: HTML, CSS, and Javascript. I expect I’ll still be doing a bunch of that going forward, but I also plan on doing some other fun stuff like UI design and back-end coding. I hope to venture out into Objective-C/CocoaTouch land to develop some iPhone application ideas that have been rolling around in my head, and I plan to move this site over to a new platform to force myself to learn a new CMS.

That said, I’m looking to post more here about my adventures as a self-employed HTML Jockey, so keep an eye on your feed reader or Twitter as things progress. Obviously, when the time comes, I’ll be kicking up more dust over at RHM Interactive, and that Twitter account, as well.

Now, where’d I put my parachute?

  1. Congrats! It’s always tough to jump ship, but there is no price on freedom. Do you plan to have an office? Looking to cowork?

    Good Luck, will be watching twitter for more :)
