Next Stop, Tokyo

August 14, 2009

A massive change in my life that I have been preparing for for some time is drawing very close - today is my last day in charge of the technical team at Outside Line. I've been Technical Lead at Outside Line for over two years, and have been fortunate to work with some of the most talented and creative designers and developers you are ever likely to meet - we've put together some brilliant websites in that time, and I am really proud of the work I've been a part of.

Next week my girlfriend and I will be fulfilling an ambition that we've had for close to two years by packing our bags and moving to Tokyo, Japan. After visiting the country in 2008 and falling in love with the sights, sounds and smells, we have both been desperate to spend more time in the country. I will be taking up the role of UX Engineer with Cirius, where I will be helping to develop and extend their products in the international market. I'm really looking forward to working with some very talented people in a fresh, agile environment, and all within a city as vibrant and exciting as Tokyo. See you all on the other side.
