My career at Schematic has come to an end, though fortunately on my own terms. I have decided to slow things down a bit so that I can regain focus on the things that have truly boosted my career, such as my blog, speaking engagements, and book opportunities. When was the last time that I produced any experimental work or wrote a long blog post? Why don’t I have any iPhone apps for sale in the app store? These are the types of things that I hope to fix now that I am flying solo.
Looking back on my time at Schematic, the biggest disappointment is that the company had one of the best Flash teams on the planet when I first joined the staff. Over the course of the past two years, I have watched as they let people such as Robert Reinhardt, Danny Patterson, Joey Lott, Geoff Stearns, Drew Cummins, Todd Anderson, Josh Noble, Mims Wright, Roger Braunstein, Ash Atkins, Jeff Yamada, and Alan Queen slip away. It is really a shame more than anything. The most recent incident that really upset me was when they laid off John Lindquist. I really value working with top-notch people, so all of this played a huge role in my decision to move on. Enough said about that.
I don’t really have much of a plan for what my next steps are going to be. I am open to opportunities of all types, so feel free to contact me if you are interested in collaborating on a project, bringing me in to do some in-house training, or offering a full-time position. Contract work seems to be the most appealing option to me at the moment, but I am definitely willing to explore other paths. The bottom line is – I want to work on great projects with great people. If that is you, then get in touch!
