Yesterday was my five year anniversary at Microsoft. My “acquisition handcuffs” expired a long time ago. I can genuinely say that I’m here because it’s what I want to be doing!
My time at Microsoft also overlaps with my 5 years in the US and Seattle has really grown on me. It took a little while getting used to the outdoor lifestyle, but since doing that (and shifting my photography in that direction) we’ve loved it. Right now, I’d go so far as to say that Seattle has a better balance and quality of life than Singapore and even London.
It’s now been a year and a half in my current job. Running UX & Design @ Bing has been the most exciting and impactful job I’ve had at Microsoft and is certainly the most dynamic group I’ve ever been a part of.

A short video I made of the Vaux Swifts while photographing. Captured on a Fuji X-E1. First sequence is with the Fuji 18-55 lens, while the rest is with an Olympus OM Zuiko 135mm f2.8 lens mounted via an adapter. The camera was sitting on a Gitzo 1542T tripod. Edited in Adobe Premier Pro. I’m new to video so am probably not getting things right as I convert and upload to vimeo, but I liked the result all the same. The Fuji is good with video but not great yet. I’m hoping Fuji bring it up to the same level of control / quality as the cameras are for stills and this setup will be unbeatable for hybrid photography.
At Bing, we understand that search is more than simply finding information, it’s about taking action and gaining knowledge. Since Bing’s launch
