Today begins a new chapter. For the past few days I've been awaking earlier as the anticipation builds. In a few weeks I'll be leaving the Colorado spring behind. It will be replaced with the bloom of a desert spring. I'm leaving the place I've called home for the last decade to become the Director of Information Technology for the Boyd School of Law at UNLV. I have learned so many valuable lessons from the people I've had the opportunity to work with at StorageTek and EDS. I will miss greatly the great people who I've come to know on the Larimer County Search and Rescue team as well as the Larimer County Sheriff's Department and support team. Thank you all for helping make me ready for the next step.
It would be much harder to leave were it not for the wonderful group of people I'll be joining in Las Vegas. Each of my meetings with the people of the law school has shown me a kind of energy and enthusiasm that exists in few other places. It is a place, filled with distinguished people at all levels, that combines the energy, enthusiasm, and nothing can stop us attitude of a start-up company with the finest of academic scholarship and exploration.
