Happy New Year

2011 was one of the most positively life changing years of my life. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

After nine long months, Adva, my lovely wife, gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl. We named her Emily. She is now a little over 2 months old, and I think I'm starting to get the hang of being a father. And it's great!

Julpan, a company that a good friend of mine founded was acquired by Twitter. I was involved as a consultant from the very beginning and cannot be more proud for being part of this amazing accomplishment.

As a direct result of the above, I have a new job, working at the Twitter NYC office as Design Lead. So excited for what's in store for 2012, get ready for some cool stuff!

Made For Humans, the small web design and development business I founded, flourished in 2011. I had the previlage to work with so many amazing clients and projects and I got to learn the ins and outs of owning and running my own business. Priceless lesson.

Adva and I left Manhattan and moved to Brooklyn! We have a wonderful new apartment with an amazing view. We can see the sky! Never thought I would say this but: I'm a Brooklynite!

I had the pleasure to spend a few months amongst the ever so eclectic (and amazing) group of people that call themselves Studiomates. My time there was cut short due to my joining Twitter, but the time I did spend there was a blast!

And now, 2012 is about to begin and it is going to be amazing as well! So much to look forward to, so many new chalanges await, so many new people to meet and new places to experience, so many new things to read, write, design, listen to, talk about and create. Looking forward to it all.

Happy New Year Everyone!
