I grew up in NYC and then moved as far away as possible (without crossing national borders or having my hat float) in order to go to college. After school I worked in the Bay Area for a while, then again moved as far away as possible, this time politically and culturally, to Texas. Despite the awesome barbecue available there, it turns out I didn't have much in common with the state, so I've returned to the Bay Area. This makes me happy.
Furthermore, I'm now working at a company you may have heard of called Google. Every good thing you've heard about working here is true, and every bad thing you've heard about working here is a total lie. :) Seriously, though, working with awesome people to make your phone and tablets more useful -- there aren't many places I'd rather be.
(Just in case it's not totally obvious, this is my personal account, and anything I post here or on Blogger reflects just my whimsy, and not my employer's. I certainly wouldn't want my smart-ass remarks to somehow be thought to be official in any way.)
