Cousins. Ex colleagues are killing it. #tumblr #flickr
One dude who deserves more airtime: @jcb was the early designer, frontend, backend, OG, #5 staffer, do-it-all glue that made Tumblr what it was in the formative years. Super talented and so humble that he’ll never brag about himself and will let others take the spotlight. And he’s super nice! I’ve seen him pull together some amazing features without breaking a sweat. I’ve missed working with Jacob a lot.
Per my last post, the green Mustang was my dad’s car that he sold for an Oldsmobile (because it would fit the family better) $&#! What could have been passed down….
Random drinks with a whiskey & car enthusiast has brought to my attention that the Volvo p1800 might be my dream car.

I came to the job as a fan. I had emailed Tumblr on a whim, telling them of my admiration and absolute belief that it was going to be the next big thread in the social fabric of the Internet:“As I find myself discovering daily Tumblr awesomeness, I thought, “This is exactly the place where I want to help build and make better.””
A few months later, John called me on the phone while I was in Argentina and a few weeks later, I met David and the team and instantly felt at home.
I wrote a Medium thingy.

Congrats Tumblr team. This is one of my favorite moments from the early days.
Lots of thoughts about my two former companies coming together - excitement, wariness, expectant, hopefulness — but just today, I’m simply grateful to have worked with amazing and talented friends who dedicated themselves to the task of making the world a more expressive place.
The road ahead is paved with the best intentions.
