it’s official. i am an apple employee. confidentiality is number 1, so i won’t be blogging about my work, but the experience of being an apple employee will show up in my posts.
today was the absolute best first day experience i’ve ever had. orientation was short and to the point, welcoming by every apple employee i met was warm, genuine and felt like family. its hard to put into words what the culture is like – its unlike anywhere i’ve ever worked. i am so honored to have be chosen to join the ranks of apple, inc. and i think today it hit me how big of a deal it is. how exclusive this group of people are, and how much fun i’m about to have. the ability to be creative, to be supported, to collaborate with the best and the brightest in the world, and the opportunity to travel – (london, tokyo, china, etc are on coming). to be a part of a company that creates innovation that changes the way the world works is beyond my comprehension on day one, but so exciting to think about.
my team is amazing, my work space is amazing, my equipment is amazing, now to just find a house….
thank you apple for greatest, most organized, fastest to be up and running, and most exciting first day ever – i look forward to many years to come!

That is an awesome start to your Apple adventure! I am not sure I can pick a favorite San Francisco neighborhood in your poll. Too hard. I studied often at Crossroads on Delancy in law school so I voted for South Beach, but there are so many great nooks in SF.
thanks mel – today was humbling if nothing else. i love starbucks, but this company is far beyond what i expected, and so different when just comparing first day experiences (like night and day different). southbeach is actually very high on our list – it’s feels like “us” but not like traditional SF which is why we’re still looking in cow hollow and potrero hills. more updates on that as the weeks progress…we’ve got to land on something soon.
thanks so much for the comment!
