New Direction, New Life

It's a bit surreal thinking about the events of the last two months, and how they have had a profound change on my life and my future. Until last Friday, I was employed with the O.C. Tanner Company doing web animation, web designing, jewelry designing, and I even designed a toy. How's that for diversity? It was a fun 14 year ride. I made many, many close friends there. I miss them dearly already.

For the last 3 weeks, I've been working full-time for a company for whom I've been freelancing for several years called Insect Lore. They are based out of California, but I've negotiated being able to work for them from home in Utah. This job has been a dream-come-true for me. I've always wanted to work in the children's market and this is exactly why they hired me. I'm amazed at how much I get done working at home. My wife and children have been very supportive, and know that when daddy is in his studio, he's at work. They've adjusted very well to the change.

My new coworkers are a real fun group! Although I don't work right next to them physically, I really feel welcome and already fit in. That means the world to me, and I'm excited for what the future holds for my career.
