After 8 incredible years at Mozilla, the time has come for me to discover new ideas, meet new people, and explore more of what’s out there. There’s no other organization or community quite like Mozilla, and I feel honored and lucky to have called it home for so long. I can’t overstate how much Mozillians have taught and shaped me personally and professionally, and I’m so grateful for our time together.
I’m ready for something new and ambitious, and will be spending some extended time building, learning, and reflecting. In other words, I’m taking a sabbatical to focus on:
- Building cool stuff. It’s been too long since I’ve spent time building and shipping a personal project, and I’ve got some new ideas I’m itching to play with. I’m excited to stretch some creative muscles and see where they take me.
- Learning new skills. In recent years, my passion for travel has led to a strong interest in learning new languages and becoming a better photographer. I’m looking forward to spending time learning Spanish, photography, and other skills — maybe I’ll even become a Wilderness First Responder!
- Reflection. Tomorrow I turn 27. It’s a good time to stop and think about the bigger picture – what matters to me, what I truly enjoy doing, and plans for the future.
I’m pretty darn excited.
