Ending one adventure, and beginning another

to-infinity-and-beyond

As many of you may already know, my time at InMotion Hosting is ending today to pursue a career at RocketGenius.

The decision to do so certainly wasn’t easy.  Any of you who know me, know that I am an extremely loyal person and do not waver in my convictions.  In a discussion with Jeff Chandler about the transition to RocketGenius, he reminded me that I had previously stated that it would take a lot to get me to leave InMotion.  My response was simply that my goals are far surpassed with RocketGenius and I just need to take a leap of faith.

In my time at InMotion, I have learned a lot.  My experiences here have far surpassed my expectations and have skyrocketed my career.  Without InMotion, I likely wouldn’t be as active in the WordPress community, or even at all.  When I started at InMotion, my skillset was quite basic.  A little Linux, a dash hosting, some development, and a hint of marketing.  I had no idea that I would be travelling, developing plugins, and expressing my passion for WordPress.  InMotion has certainly provided me with those opportunities and I am grateful for each and every one of them.

The decision to join the team at RocketGenius was simply for personal growth.  By joining the incredibly talented minds behind GravityForms, I am able to witness product development at its finest.  While there are excellent developers at InMotion, WordPress-focused development is quite lacking.  In that sense, I was the top of the ladder; the cream of the crop.  If you’ve taken a look at my code in the past, I’m far from a senior developer.  I can get things done, but I lack the polish that comes from experience.  Simply put, I am a sponge that needs to soak up knowledge, and RocketGenius is the fire hose that will give it to me.

I look forward to joining the RocketGenius team next week.  Never before have I been so excited for a Monday.  A big thanks goes out to InMotion Hosting, the other folks who have helped me get here (I’m looking at you, Jeffro), and the RocketGenius team for giving me a chance.  Together, we can change the world.

Think I’m a super cool guy? Love my beard?
