A new chapter

Friday, July 21st, 2006

I’ve decided to start my own company. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, from writing little game programming projects in elementary school and high school to starting companies around graphics technologies in college and my early years.

That was my intent when I left Openwave, but instead found a great vision, new friends, and a very valuable education from my time at FilmLoop. What a ride it has been so far.

But the market has evolved, and it is now time to take a fresh look at one of my core passions: Making stuff easy and fun for people to use.

And do this especially for mobile phones. Because right now, they’re hard to use, and certainly not fun when you are.

I trust that my past experiences will guide me through this journey, and I hope it will be very much a shared adventure with past and future friends, acquaintances through partnerships, customers, and conferences I have visited through the years.

Along the way, I will write about my new and past experiences and share any humble insights as they may come.

So with a bit of luck and elbow grease, let’s get to work!
