My Princess is in another Castle?

BY IN Business, Dell, Gaming 5 COMMENTS

As many of you know I have been with Dell for over 9 years. Before Dell however I was employed as a QA engineer for Wolf Pack Studio on the Shadowbane project. Dell has given me a lot. Number one being business maturity. I have grown a lot over the 9 years with Dell and I am the man I am today because of the experiences I had at Dell. Through out my time at Dell however I have always wanted to get back into the Video Games industry. It has always been a personal passion of mine. One of which I always find myself thinking about during the day at work.

Recently, the dream of a life time occurred for me. I was approached by a video game company and they wanted to speak with me about joining their team. After a month and a half of talks, thinking, and planning I have decided to make the move and leave Dell. It’s not easy saying good bye to people you have known for 9 years and it still feels like I am letting some of my co-workers down. But I can’t pass up the chance of a life time! I guess the way to look at it is that my true happiness could not be fulfilled by Dell… my princess was in another castle.

I still plan on speaking about education reform and technology integration into the classroom. This is still something I find interesting and think it will transform education for the better. I hope that you stick with me through this change and be apart of my new experiences and growth in the future!

    It’s crazy I have so many new friends from my new role at Dell and will be missing them just as much as my old friends. To the both of you I am sure I will be around especially on twitter and even in the education space a bit. As I will be speaking with HIED customers on educating students on the game engine I sale. Also I will be speaking at many different conferences in the coming months. So I will be out there 🙂

    This is a huge step in your career. I’m really excited to see how you evolve in that industry and hopefully catch up often on the latest news in the Donald Harris world. Sad to see you go, but I know you’ll be doing awesome over there.

    Please upload pictures of your trips to fun land. 🙂

So, what do you think ?
