New Year, New Job. 2018 Enter the Dragon
For those of you that don’t know me, I started a new gig this year. I recently joined SoHo Dragon NYC, where I still am a Office 365 & SharePoint consultant. There was a great opportunity to join their growing team in NYC. I’ll be helping to nurture and grow their Office 365 & SharePoint practice as well be a leader and mentor for some of the junior developers.
This wasn’t entirely an easy decision to start a new job. For many years (8 exactly) I was very comfortable in my previous role as a SharePoint Developer were I sat and just developed requirements that were handed to me. I worked with tons of interesting clients and solved lots of real world problems. I worked with a growing team and some of my lifelong friends. But I stayed longer than I ever thought. I’ve always had a fire inside that demands challenge and requires a level of unpredictability (why I like consulting).
I decided that it was time to make a change. Over the past few years I’ve worked with SoHo Dragon’s CTO and owner Peter Ward on different community engagements. We would car-pool on weekend trips to SharePoint Saturday’s in Boston, Baltimore other nearby states. I’ve witnessed SoHo Dragon mature as a company during that time and I liked the direction that they are going. It wasn’t until the end of 2017 when I decided that it was time to moved on from my previous work and join them. I am looking forward to the new clients and new challenges that this year brings.
