Working for Six Apart [Nov. 15th, 2005|04:51 pm]

So I arrived in the US after quite a long wait on the 3rd of November to join up with Six Apart here in San Francisco. Despite my lack of any formal education, they managed to get me a O1 Alien of Extraordinary Ability visa, I assume this is the same kind of visa that Teal'c in Stargate SG:1 has.

A lot of people helped me get my visa and fullfil my desire to move to sunny San Francisco. Thanks go to Larry Wall, Damian Conway, Nathan Torkington, Nicholas Clark and Allison Randal who all went to bat for me and wrote glowing letters of support. It was all assembled by my lawyer Jeptha Evans who managed somehow to take my case and write something that convinced the USCIS that I deserve to be in the US.

I have for the last couple of years been working for Fotango, and I also want to thank them for providing me references and letter of support, and for the years we had together. I hope London treats you well.

The job I have taken on is Engineering Manager for LJ, so I hope I can join the amazing hackers that work here and make the site kickass even more.

The fact that you compare your INS battles to Stargate SG:1 means you are probably the right person for the job :)
