Taking the Plunge

Wednesday, July 18, 2012


As most of you have conjured from my recent blog posts, change is afoot in the Davis household.  Scott is set up in his new job at Nickelodeon in Times Square, and we've made the big cross country move to New York (well, really Jersey just across the river from Manhattan).  We are very excited about our big move and eager to reconnect with our friends on the East Coast.

So what does that mean for me career wise?  Well, I'm taking the plunge and am wading into the wild world of sole proprietorship and being one's own boss.   For those who have been following along for a while, you know that in between work, baby and renovating our home, I've been pouring my heart and soul into both this blog and my new hardware line.  Well, with so many commitments, something had to give.  Many folks in my industry have asked if I am transferring back to Wilson Associates' New York Office (from whence I came before setting up shop at Wilson LA).  Wilson has been my family for the past eight years, and there was certainly the opportunity to go back to the New York office.  And having that opportunity made my decision that much harder.    However, I'd been thinking about going out on my own and making my passion projects into a real business for a while and the time just seemed right.  I'll get to spend a little more time with Bryan while he's a wee one and focus more energy on growing my hardware line and doing some residential and commercial projects on my own.

I am very excited about this new chapter in our lives and the opportunity to share it with you all.  From house hunting in Jersey, to renovations and updates at Chez Davis East, to new introductions to Nest Studio's Hardware line, I hope you stick around and follow along with this new phase in our journey!
