I'm leaving WIRED and joining Bloomberg
I've had five incredible years building the team at WIRED.co.uk. We've been commercially successful, critically well-regarded and smashed internal traffic targets time and time again; I've developed a successful and chart-topping podcast with my team, which has just published its 200th episode and landed on the homepage of iTunes; and I've had the pleasure of running and writing for a large technology website with amazing people for five years, which essentially was my goal since I taught myself to code websites when I was 14.
Then I turned 30. And quite literally on my birthday I was given the opportunity to become Senior Editor at Bloomberg Media, where I would lead technology, science and media editorial online, as well as develop and host new television and video programming and help develop Bloomberg's future live events business. I have accepted.
From February 2015 I'm extremely excited to start working with an exciting new team of individuals within the extraordinarily exciting and technology-driven business at Bloomberg, based in London.
I am so proud of what my team at WIRED and I have accomplished together. During my time there I have been able to say I have my dream job, with colleagues so smart, creative, dedicated and fun to be around anyone would be rightfully envious.
But as I think about the next five years of my career this new opportunity felt like one I couldn't turn down, and while I'm excited to discover its challenges I'm deeply saddened to be leaving an incredible team of colleagues and friends.
But for now, I'm on my Xmas holiday break, which means I have plenty of work to do. But also some ales to sample and some sleeping to try and do before 2015 gets going. I can't wait.
