Several months ago I began making plans to move to New York with We Are Hunted. I finished up a lease on an amazing apartment in Sydney, I paid of some debts, sold some junk and generally rearranged my life. But as happens with many startups, things changed and as a result this is no longer happening.
I am pretty disappointed. Disappointed that I didn’t get to pursue as much with them as I had wanted. Disappointed that I didn’t get to see it through. But mostly I just really loved the people and I loved job, not to mention that the work we got to do was truly world class.
So as I have chats with companies, chats with partners and chats which are even held under NDA, I start to assess what is important. Where I want to live, who I want to be around, what I want in my life and the things that art important to me.
I know (at least I hope I know) that my next job is going to be doing something truly awesome. I know it will drive the same passion as Hunted has for so long and I know it will make me feel good about who I am. While I am getting close to making decisions, it’s still a scary thing to do.
