A page is turning

It's now official: after over 4 years working for Applied Strategies, I decided that it was time for some adjustments. I enjoyed the job tremendously, and for a long time now. For someone who is interested in developing quantitative models like me, it was a dream come true; but first and foremost, it has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with a team of smart, dedicated, and trusting people - and I am really proud of what we achieved together.
And yet, over time, I have found it increasingly difficult to balance work and my personal life, and reached the conclusion that I needed to re-establish some independence, so that I could dedicate more time to other aspects of life which matter to me. This was a very difficult decision to reach, for a variety of reasons - but I will be resigning for my position on September 15. What exactly will happen afterwards is still open; both I and Applied Strategies want to keep working together, but the exact modalities of the partnership are still under discussion. The one part I am certain of, though, is that this will begin with a healthy dose of vacations!
