An Ending and a Beginning

After almost four years in varying capacities at Envato, I’m moving on to join the good people at X-Team.

When I first joined Envato I worked on the Support Team as my family and I were travelling. It was a great job to have when on the move and wanting to also see the sights. At the time I was getting more and more active as a member of the WordPress community, and as I got to know Envato I noticed there was a large discrepancy between the company I knew and the impression the WordPress community had of them.

Envato’s passions are very much in line with my own. To educate people and enable them to support their families while having freedom of lifestyle. It’s Envato’s mission: “To Help People Learn and Earn Online.”

I’ve spent a lot of the last few years helping Envato and the WordPress community communicate with each other, and I feel like things are in a much better place than they were when I started.

― Orson Scott Card

It’s sad to be leaving a company and people that I love, but I leave satisfied, and am very excited about what’s next…

I’m joining an incredible team of talented people and getting back to another of my passions: building things!

At the beginning of April I will join X-Team to work on Stream.

A talented team and an exciting project, what more could I ask for?

I can already tell that 2014 is going to be an incredible year!
