Life Changes

I’ve been home for the last couple days preparing to start a new chapter in life. I wrapped up my tenure at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis on Friday, and will be starting my new job at Innovative tomorrow. I had a pretty good run at the museum, but I like to keep chapters short, and the time had come to make another move.

For the most part, I’ll be doing the same things at Innovative that I did at the museum, but I’ll be working with a few other developers, rather than being an island. Hopefully, this will give me the chance to learn a lot of new stuff, and validate a lot of what I’ve been doing up to this point. It will be the first time I’ve worked with a lot of other people doing the same things I do. Also, it should be more fast-paced and challenging, and I expect to soon have a lot of work to show off that I’m really proud of.

I am super thankful for my time at the museum. Every time I’ve left a non-profit job, I have felt lucky to have some of the freedoms that go along with it. It’s too bad they are always so slow-moving and cautious. There’s such a great opportunity there to do cutting-edge, fantastic stuff when failure isn’t the end of the world. But, for a lot of people, I suppose it is the end of the world.
