Dear friends, family, coworkers, and people who I don't remember meeting but I'm still Facebook friends with you:
After living 25 of my 26 years inside the beltway, I'm leaving the East Coast to start a new chapter of my life. Immediately after the election, I will join The Story of Stuff Project in Berkeley, CA, as their Director of Online Organizing and I'll be packing up the cats and taking them on a non-stop flight to SFO.
This decision is unexpected, scary, and exciting.
(Almost) everything I've ever known is in DC -- my family, my memories, my career, my life. It'll be a big transition.
But I can't wait to get started in San Francisco. I'm excited to live in a new timezone, to work in a really small office again, and to never having to deal with humidity ever again.
To those of you who, over the past year, I've said, "Let's grab a beer!" or "When are we catching up?" -- now is our time to do so.
I'll miss you all and, remember, SFO is just one Virgin America nonstop flight away.
