2010 was a fantastic year. So many great things happened involving so many good people. I launched my first public facing app, http://tweat.it in May with my friend Joel. In the same month, Crista and I debuted some of our ice cream flavors at the Brooklyn Lyceum Fair to a great public reception thereby kicking off what has turned into a new and exciting ice cream start up venture for both of us. We recently completed Ice Cream University and Crista quit her job to fully focus on the business. We are up against some very big challenges but are going to do our best to find a way to bring our ice cream to the public. We will need to raise some funding so be on the lookout for a future Kickstarter project.
I’ve had a very active year on Tumblr making a conscious effort to gear my content more towards the user experience and design crowd. One of my new favorite tags being “design tidbits.” This year has also been very productive in the freelance realm. I’ve had a chance to do (and continue to do) some great work and form great relationships for amazing clients like Postling and Scoop Street.
When I look back on 2010 and think about all the great things that have transpired I can only wonder what other good things could happen if only I had more time. Also when I look back, I can point very clearly to the things that have brought me the most satisfaction and fulfillment. For these reasons I am happy to report that I am leaving my full-time job and as of this Monday, January 31st I will be an independent User Experience Consultant. I will be starting an exciting new project and for the first time working with a woman founder. I am even more excited to report that we’ll be working out of the newly launched General Assembly space in Union Square. General Assembly is full of creative technology and design minded people not to mention it’s a beautiful and well thought out workspace.
I want to send a big shout out to all the people that have made this year wonderful, you know who you are!
