Netflix Here I Come!

Over the last 2+ years I have had the honor and pleasure of working for one of the greatest companies on the planet and with some of the greatest designers & engineers on the planet.

Yahoo! has been a great place for me. I learned a lot. Feel like I contributed a lot. I have had an honored position as a mouthpiece (a genuine one) for Yahoo!

Now its time to move on to the next challenge.

I am excited to announce that I will be joining Netflix as the Director of UI Engineering. Netflix is one of the most amazing companies to work for. And I think the most exciting days are ahead for Netflix. The challenge of digital delivery is something that I think they (we) are ready for.

I am succeeding the excellent Sean Kane who is in stealth mode, co-founding a new startup. I wish Sean amazing success and am looking forward to applying my talents and energies to the world of movies!

Awesome! I hope you keep blogging. Your blog is a source of inspiration for my work. I love the UX blogs as well as the AJAX coding ones; although I do not code at all, unless you count the occational HTML tag and simple javascript roll overs! I can't wait to see how you can make Netflix better. Best of luck.
