Totally Obvious

I’m happy to announce that today is my first official day as a full-time Obvious employee.

If you’re a frequent visitor to the About Us page on Twitter, you’ll notice that I’ve been on there for a while. That’s because I’ve been doing contract work on Twitter since earlier this year.

Our recent trip to San Francisco was in part to see if I liked working with the Obvious folks and vice versa. I definitely did, and T and I will be moving to San Francisco in the near future.

I’m looking forward to continuing to improve Twitter. It’s been great fun to work on something that so many people are enthusiastic about. But more than that, I’m looking forward to working with the awesome people at Obvious. It’s a great place to be.
