During my three-year tenure at Microsoft, I have met many wonderful people.  For those of you I have worked with along the way, I wanted to share my bittersweet news.  After three amazing years at Microsoft, I will be leaving to start a new chapter in my life.  While I am not writing out the possibility of returning to Microsoft in the future, now is the optimal time in my life to transition to the next phase of my career path.  Thank you for joining me on my wonderful three-year roller coaster ride of challenges and opportunities – I hope that our paths will cross again in the future.


I will be moving to Equis Corporation, a real estate advisory group based in Chicago.  My new opportunity will be as a transaction advisory associate with Equis.  My duties will include working with business clients to identify their real estate usage and needs, work closely with my clients to evaluate the various space options and negotiate the best lease or purchase arrangements to help my clients save money.  It will be a great opportunity for me to develop my customer relations and sales skills, while simultaneously having a significant impact on my clients’ businesses.


My last day at Microsoft will be 10/31/2006.  Feel free to contact me via this blog if you would like to stay in touch following my transition.


Happy Coding,
