A year ago today, I started working at Knotch, and what a year it has been! I have often joked that start up years are like dog years - one year feels like seven! That could not be more true for my experience at Knotch, but not so much because of how Knotch has changed, but how I have changed because of Knotch (and I am not just talking about my hair color!)
I have grown so much over the past year, under the leadership of Anda Gansca, CEO, and Aron Tzimas, CCO. I have had the privilege of meeting and hiring so many incredible people. And, most importantly to me, this queer ‘misfit’ from Mississippi has been fortunate to work at company who’s culture I not only belong to, but I also thrive.
Though I am celebrating today from my couch in Harlem instead of our office in Tribeca, I am beaming and full of excitement for the year ahead. I wish I could see all my Knotchers today, but I feel confident we will commemorate like never before when we return to the office! It is a pleasure to work for you and represent you all every day. Thank you for having me be that representative. It is a privilege I don’t take for granted.
Here is a selfie from my first day. Blonde Garrison was a COMPLETELY different person, wasn’t he?
