Family

I no longer work for HB. The reasons aren’t important – what’s important is my relationship with HB for nearly 6.5 years. The company – especially the Creative team – have watched me grow from a boy into (arguably) a man as I bought a house, got married, and became a father. The “trifecta” of life events were all shared with my HB family.

The reasons aren’t important – what’s important is my relationship with HB during my time as a designer and interactive strategist. The company – especially the Creative team – watched me grow from a boy into (arguably) a man as I bought a house, got married, and became a father. The “trifecta” of life events were all shared with my HB family over 6.5 years.

But it’s the last 48 hours where my family truly worked their magic.

There’s my immediate family who I go to for emotional support in moments of confusion. They are available, open, and supportive with no strings attached. I’m blessed to have them in my life.

Then there’s my extended family and friends – all of whom offered words of encouragement, a few laughs, and suggestions for next steps.

And it’s amazing the work my professional network family has done in so little time. I’ve had an unexpected number of folks – some of who haven’t heard from me in years – graciously offer an introduction, recommendation, or a helping hand. Their words alone mean the world.

And finally, there’s my HB family. I’ve invested so much time with them during my tenure as an HBer. There were lots of tears as we parted ways this week – because emotions are prevalent in any family. They’ve looked out for me and will continue to do so in the coming weeks and months.

Thank you to my HB family for an amazing ride. Maybe I’ll get to introduce you to my new family, wherever they will be.
