‘Tellme about your new gig’

Tellme logoI have accepted a new job doing product marketing at Tellme Networks for their automotive consumer services. If you’re saying “WTF?,” well, let’s just say that it’s an exciting opportunity to invent the future.

Tellme is located in Mountain View, Ca. I’ll be starting on Monday with a week at CES in Las Vegas. If you’re in Las Vegas next week, lemme know!

I will soon be moving from DC to California. If you know of great 1 BR apartments near CalTrain in SF, lemme know!

Whenever you hear job search advice, they always talk about the power of networking. My search was no different. I’ve been fortunate to have the support and advice of many friends and colleagues. Special thanks to Mark Schulze, Carl Wartzack, Mike Sommers, Chamath Palihapitiya, Jeff Silbert, Jeff Patton, Charles Wilson, Jonathan Gaw, Arnaud Fischer, Mona Dessouki, Dariusz Paczuski, Kim Moy, Jim Simmons, Adam Lasnik, Jim Bankoff, Sree Sreenivasan, Wanita Niehaus, Farhan Memon and Mark Canon.

If you’re visiting the Bay Area, please look me up.

    Good luck in your new endeavor! Try to extend your Vegas trip by a couple days to stick around for the adult entertainment convention!

    Welcome to Tellme! I just saw your blog in your welcome message and noticed you were looking for 1BR’s. There’s usually a ton of 1BR lofts near the 24th St Caltrain station. These tend to be more affordable than anything near the King St Caltrain ($3K+). I lived in great loft in the dogpatch for 2 years and while the area is still coming up (not much to walk to), it was a very convenient area. I’d start with Craigslist and set up an rss feed for Potrero Hill 1BR apartments. Good luck!
