2009 - A good year...

2009 draws to a close, and it just struck me what a phenomenal year it has been.

This year I:

  • Traveled through Morocco
  • Visited Paris
  • Got engaged!
  • Drove across the USA, from New York to California, via Nashville, New Orleans, Austin and Roswell
  • Moved to San Francisco
  • Helped AKQA and Fiat win loads of awards for eco:Drive
  • Hung out with a supermodel, and got paid for it.
  • Got interviewed by Wired Magazine, along with a cool photo shoot.
  • Joined a great team at AKQA SF, and helped make it even greater
  • Released FBConnectAuth, a tiny open source component for ASP.NET that helps with Facebook Connect authentication.
  • Met someone who was actually using FBConnectAuth.
  • Got to live in a great house in SF, in an awesome neighborhood.
  • Learnt to speak American.
  • Got to learn Groovy and Grails
  • Worked (and still working) on a massive (and still super-secret) grails project
  • Earned a new nickname ("Piping Hot" - for my terrible Halo skills)
  • Made new friends with funny accents.

I have a lot to be thankful for.

I hope you all (that's you mum) have a wonderful 2010!

Happy Holidays (see, check out my American skills)
