2012-09-17 Westward Bound

Starting Thursday I begin a huge transition in my life–I will be heading out to Salt Lake City, UT for a new job.  The Northeast is my home for sure.  I grew up in New Hampshire, went to college in Massachusetts, and began my career in Connecticut.  However, bigger and more accessible mountains drew me into looking for positions in the West.  As luck would have it I have found an engineering position at Black Diamond Equipment.  BD designs and manufactures some of the best climbing, mountaineering, and ski equipment out there.  Naturally this is a great fit for me since it brings together my professional life and my outdoor passions.  A recently retired co-worker had a signature at the bottom of his emails and I think it is fitting for my situation.

To all my friends in the Northeast, please come out to visit!  Utah has some amazing snow from what I’m told.  The climbing is great too.  I’ll be back in the area at times so hopefully I can see everyone.
