Gearing up for a new year

It’s been a while and I have been very remiss on updating folks on my whereabouts and new things from Adobe and the rest of the creative world. Rest assured, I am fine and things are moving along to set me up for a very productive 2016.

The first step was settling into the groove with my new job (finally). It does take a lot more of my time than my previous job did, and adjusting has taken some time. I do love the environment and my coworkers are tops.

The next step was to build a better Batcave, or my home office. Temporarily I was working out of my rec room/bar, with a dedicated area for my business and storage of my related items. Since this summer, I have been working on building out my new space. It is mostly completed and useable, but I am adding some soundproofing for recording new lynda.com lynda.com and podcasting with the Pixel Pundits.

Here’s a sneak peek of the current iteration of the office:

In the meantime, I do have some news of upcoming travels for 2016 already. I will be attending (not speaking) at Adobe Summit. It is the first time in a very long time and it is exciting to be on the other side of the fence attending an event. Also, I am confirmed for ADIM 16 – 20,000 Layers Under the Sea with the incomparable Russell Brown at Adobe HQ.

Now that I’m back in the swing I hope to catch you on our next podcast or here with my musings.
