Andy's Moving On from SmugMug
I've had a long run with SmugMug, since December of 2003 when I started Dgrin at Baldy's request Then, officially signing on with SmugMug in September of 2005 and then becoming Chief Operating Officer. When I started at SmugMug, I was the 10th person at the company - and now there are over 110! With me in New York and the company in California, and with so many amazing people that now work at SmugMug, the time has come for me to move on - and that's what I'm doing.

So, what does the future bring for me? I'm not exactly sure, I'm pursuing some different opportunities. I expect to be instructing, teaching, writing, and doing workshops and more. Of course I will continue to be here, helping to make Dgrin as great a forum as possible, and try to help out anyone that needs my assistance.

Thank you all for being here, and for being part of what I love most - the photography community.

Andy,

I know the future will be very bright with whatever you pursue. You're both a scholar and a gentleman (to coin a slightly older phrase) and in the new modern dictionary your image should be shown under the heading of "diplomacy."

Thanks for all your help over the last few years!

So after the marriage shouldn't that free you up to "head west young man" eh?

-rich56k

PS: Congrats to your son also!

I have to say, you have been one of the most patient, understanding and down to earth Chief Operating Officers I have had the pleasure of dealing with.
You have always been quick to respond and willing to help solve any problem no matter what time of the day or night or how big or small the problem may have been.
Your COO presence will certainly be missed.

Wishing you a great future,
--Shawn

Good luck with whatever your next endeavor is, Andy. I'm sure it will be interesting and something you attack with passion.

You may be excused when you've shipped the ginormous release containing the new default gallery style.

We go way back man, and I sure will miss you.

I'm in utter shock and disbelief. . We've worked together on issues, bumped heads at times, and I have always had a very large amount of respect for you. I can't see Smugmug being the same without you. You leave some very, very big shoes to fill. I wish you the very best in whatever you venture into next--in life and in your career.
