I’m happy to announce I’ve accepted an offer to work for Microsoft full-time!
Starting in April, I’ll be a Senior Content Publisher in the Modern Assistance and Support Experience (MAX) group. We’re moving to Seattle!
For me, this is really the culmination of a dream I’ve had for a long time. The first time I applied to work at Microsoft was in 1997, as a senior in Computer Science at Northwestern. If I recall correctly, the only response to my application was a form letter received months later. Fast forward 19 years and I’m a different person and Microsoft is a different company.
One thing that hasn’t changed is Peter Loforte, GM of MAX. He’s been at Microsoft since ’93 and a GM since 2002. As far as I can tell, he’s a rockstar. And, you want to work for a rockstar. I got the chance to speak with him during my 8 hour long interview day. And, like most everyone else I’ve met on the Redmond campus, he’s a very smart and ambitious person. I could tell from talking with him that not only does he believe in Microsoft’s mission, he really believes Microsoft is contributing to the betterment of mankind.
I’m excited to join a great team at a great company and move to a great city. I’ll miss San Antonio and all the friends we’ve made in the 15 years here. I’m sure we’ll be back to visit!
