Friday, October 27th, 2006 will mark my last day of full-time gainful employment at Fair Isaac Corporation where I’ve been a part of the skilled and talented team responsible for myFICO.com for nearly four years. My reasons for leaving are many and varied, but in the end I simply felt it was time to move on.
I’m giving up the comfort of a steady income with benefits for the exciting and terrifying life of the freelance web designer. It’s a gutsy career move, rife with potential for failure. But the greatest risks can often lead to the greatest rewards, and I’m hopeful for the future. I already have a few projects lined up, though I do plan to indulge in a brief, soul-cleansing period of gratuitous laziness before diving in headlong.
I wish the best of luck to the teammates I leave behind, and you can be sure I’ll keep checking in on the site in hopes that the markup doesn’t go to hell in my absence.
