I joined FAST in September of 2008, excited about the opportunity to work at Microsoft.  Three years later, I have learned an incredible amount about search engines, engineering driven cultures, and what it’s like to work at a true technology company.  I am grateful to my wonderful colleagues for teaching me so much.

Leaving Microsoft was a hard decision, but I’m really excited about the next chapter in my life.  I’m starting business school at Yale, and I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities ahead.  In my first week, I got to:

  • Meet many of my new classmates
  • Visit one of the largest media conglomerates in the world and meet with their CEO for 2 hours
  • Enjoy happy hour on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange

This was even before classes started (they start tomorrow).  I’m excited to be able to take advantage of one of the best universities in the world, all while enjoying the atmosphere of a close knit MBA program.  With that said, I need to go finish my reading for my first day of class.  It’s going to be a wild ride.
