I’m Officially Joining lynda.com

I’ve been teasing for weeks now that I have a big announcement coming… Well, today is the day folks! Beginning February 6th, I will be officially joining the lynda.com team as a Staff Author. If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I’ve been doing this training thing for quite some time. I’ve taken a few jobs and even tried to strike out on my own once or twice, but in the end I always felt as if something was missing. Now, with this new job at lynda.com, I’m able to fulfill my dream of doing what I love for a company I love and respect. The best part is that I only have to focus on one thing… Creating content! After all, that’s what I do best.

Though the details of what I’m working on for lynda.com will be kept under lock and key until they’ve been released in the Online Training Library ®, I can assure you that my roadmap for 2012 is pretty awesome! This year you are going to see me expand my teachings beyond the normal things that I teach and hopefully you and I will both learn something along the way. I’m sure many of you will have questions about my online presence going forward, and I plan to address those in the near future. For now, just know that my focus will be squarely on my job at lynda.com and creating new and exciting courses for you to watch.

I give my thanks to everyone at lynda.com for making my experience there thus far so awesome, and to my lovely wife, thank you so much for being understanding and ready to pack up our lives at a moment’s notice, and for allowing me to pursuit my dreams… Seriously, you’re the best and I love you! Also thanks to any-and-everyone who has ever watched one of my videos. It’s because of you that I do what I do for a living and now get paid to do it! Please keep the questions and tutorial requests coming in, they all add fuel to my creative fire.

This is a wonderful opportunity for me and my family, and I am humbled to be a part of such an awesome and creative team that includes names like James Williamson, Ray Villalobos, Doug Winnie, and Mordy Golding! Again, thanks for all the support, and please stay tuned for more news and updates in the coming weeks!
