It is with a heavy heart that I annouce to the Burnt Orange Report community that I must resign as a writer for this influential political blog.
You may recall that I spent the early spring semester of 2010 as a Bill Archer Fellow in our nation's capital where I served as an intern at the Financial Services Roundtable. I was offered a position shortly after my graduation from the University of Texas at Arlington on December 18, 2010, and will be returning to the same organization but with a much different, and far more challenging level of responsibilities to boot. I am very excited about this opportunity!
It has been an honor and privilege to bond with such a large network of people and talented writers over the last several years here with the Burnt Orange Report. I'm quite proud of my contributions here and the dialogue we struck together on the pressing issues facing our state and country.
It has been a long and hard road for me to pursue such a great opportunity in Washington so I am thrilled to reach this point in my life.
Henry David Thoreau once said “go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined.”
I can't imagine a better life then what I've been able to share with all of you here at Burnt Orange Report, but I imagine that what I am about to experience in DC will be equally as life-changing too.
