Goodbye, Tuenti. Hello, King.

IMG_0383-0.JPGToday, after three years of adventures at Plaça Catalunya 1, two offices in Madrid and, of course, the “bar car” on the AVE, it’s time to say goodbye to Tuenti and hello to my new team at King Digital, makers of amazing games like Candy Crush Soda Saga, here in Barcelona.

Although it’s been years since I worked in the education space in years, I’m still fascinated by how we learn. In many ways, creating and sharing knowledge are the most human activities and are consistently my biggest motivators. When it comes to learning and teaching, my time at Tuenti was abundant. I leave smarter, faster and more inspired than I was that first day in November 2011. I could never list everyone and everything I picked up there, but I’ve done my best at the end of this post. But the truth is, I got the most important lesson my first day, probably because it’s what makes Tuenti “Tuenti”: smart, passionate people with big goals can do amazing things.

Now, it’s time to learn new things, and my new role as UX & Product Director for CRM will provide a tough but rewarding classroom. Helping players discover all of King’s amazing games while creating a fun, emotionally rewarding experience is exactly the kind of problem I love and can’t wait to work on. From what I’ve seen so far, I’m joining another team packed with sharp, fun people who love what they do and embrace the tough but rewarding path.
