Most of my friends know I left MakerBot back in December/January. They were going in a direction that didn’t fit my style/interests and the commute back and forth to NYC was becoming a real headache, especially with a little human in my life. Someday when dust has settled I’ll talk about it. But for now there is too much chance my opinion would misunderstood or ‘creatively’ misinterpreted by folks that have been with MakerBot. No hard feeling on my end, but the situation just wasn’t working out.
After leaving I took some time off, then spent some time taking took a look around the Philadelphia scene for any interesting opportunities. After talking to several shops I finally found a great fit for my interests and skill.
As of last week I’ve joined on with BuLogics as Chief Innovator. I’ll be once again herding nerds and working to keep the engineering and design team in close coordination with the business folks. Two things I enjoy, and am pretty damn good at.
Part of what set BuLogics offer apart was a chance to have a big influence in their next stage of growth. They are looking to expand and focus their skills a bit more cleanly. It’s hard to pass up such a great opportunity there to help take an organization to the next stage of growth.
Another great side effect of the new position is that I have a lot more flexibility to blog. So you all can look forward to more posts about teams, teamwork, and creating a culture of making both here and over at BuLogics blog.
P.S. also, check out the terrible bio photo :( It’s the only one I had available when they posted that I’ll have to change that soon.
