As my late father in law said: This life is not a dress rehersal - you've got to live it now because its the only chance you'll get.
I've spent the last four years as a cube dweller - and now I've made the switch back to being my own boss as a freelance user experience designer. It feels energizing, overwhelming, exciting and scary all at the same time.
I'm having to learn about market myself, selling my skills, blogging, tweeting, SEM, and lots of other things.
Sometimes I work from my basement office, sometimes from the neighborhood Starbucks, and often from my car in between meeting with potential clients.
Look how happy I look in this headshot! I'm smiling even with my new(ish) wrinkles showing.
