Some big news to report



After much consideration (and interviewing!) I have accepted an offer with a venture capital firm here in NYC, L Capital Partners. I will be focused on investments and portfolio companies in the wireless, IT, and digital media sectors.

So what's with the picture you might ask? It's one of the catchphrases that an artist in our neighborhood (De La Vega) often uses. It rang pretty true for me given that I've been working for a long time to reach this point.

While I'm philosophizing, here is another one of his quotes that I really like:

"THE PRESSURE OF SURVIVAL IN THE BIG CITY WILL MAKE YOU LOSE SIGHT OF YOUR DREAM...HANG IN THERE."

I am glad I didn't lose sight of mine, and thanks to everyone who helped me to keep it in focus.
