It is so strange to type these words – but last Friday was my last day at Adobe. There are very few companies I’d ever consider leaving Adobe for, but recently I volunteered at a New York-based company called charity: water, and fell in love. They use technology to bring clean & safe drinking water to millions of people in developing countries and I am moving to New York to join their leadership team as Director of Product.

In a few short days I start a 7 week sabbatical from Adobe spending it at the heart of everything that is: New York City. I will be going to hackathons, design meetups, music performances, plays, movies in parks, art shows, broadway shows, standup shows & improv shows. I want to visit the offices of Behance, Tumblr, Etsy, General Assembly, FiftyThree, Art.sy and so many more. I want to eat at every David Chang/Momofuku restaurant. I want to drink Stumptown coffee every day, learn the subway system and wear those true summer outfits I am lucky to wear once in SF. I want to talk to as many people as I can who are using technology in whatever way possible to improve the world, just because.

In less then a week I will be in Europe with my team to talk with customers, engage with developers, speak at events, learn a ton and have some fun.

The feature I’m most excited about is the new “layout mirroring” feature which lets developers mirror their layouts for right-to-left locales.
