#JoiningTheFlock

TwitterLogo_#55aceeBig news: start­ing in mid-July, I’ll be join­ing Twitter’s legal team as a Prod­uct Coun­sel.

It’s hard to express how thrilled I am about this new chap­ter in my career.  Ever since work­ing with the Prod­uct Coun­sel team at Google, I’ve dreamed of some­day becom­ing a Prod­uct Coun­sel for a great com­pany.  That goal has dri­ven every career deci­sion of mine over the past 7 years, from intern­ing at EFF to start­ing my prac­tice in WSGR’s Inter­net Strat­egy & Lit­i­ga­tion group.

Although this oppor­tu­nity comes some­what sooner in my career than I expected, I’m excited to take on the chal­lenge.  It’ll be fan­tas­tic to work with some famil­iar faces, and to get to know the rest of the team and the com­pany bet­ter.  More prac­ti­cally, this change means I get back the two hours I was spend­ing in the car every­day between San Fran­cisco and Palo Alto — now the office is just a 25 minute MUNI ride away!

Although the road ahead is doubt­less full of new chal­lenges, they are the types of chal­lenges I have been long­ing to take on.  I can’t wait to get started.
