Well today is a crazy day. I’ve made the decision after 18 years to leave Microsoft. To say it’s been a “once in a lifetime” experience is an understatement. The team at
#Xbox has meant so much to me and I’ll be cheering them on – there is so much great stuff still to come.
I want to say thank you to all the fans and followers for the support and encouragement and great feedback over the years. It’s been awesome meeting and talking with so many of you. The FANS are the energy that keeps the team going so keep it up!!
