It’s not often that you pack up your life and take it across the country, but that’s what we did in early March. One day we were living in a San Francisco urban highrise; the next we were amid snow-covered fields in a town outside Hartford, Connecticut.
A few weeks later, I’m pleased to say, “So far, so good.” Our two-year-old daughter has happily adapted to new everything. And—the reason we’re here—Jacqueline is now an executive at a Fortune 100 financial-services company based in the area.
I am continuing my CNET duties, working out of a home office but traveling regularly, including to San Francisco. So to those in my Bay Area network, I’ll be around. And for friends and colleagues in New York and Boston, I look forward to seeing more of you. Hartford is about halfway between, a couple hours by car.
Leaving Northern California, there is much to miss. But I like the idea of change when the circumstances are right. Long story short, the circumstances were right.
