Brett Carter, born and raised in New York – Brooklyn to Flushing, Queens to Long Island. Eventually married and moved to New Jersey, then moved from New Jersey to Encinitas in 2011.
I’ve been at VMware since 2010, starting in our field office in NJ running Professional Services in the Northeast. Our organization restructured a year later, and the job my peer was doing in the West (from Denver) opened up. I asked my boss at the time if I could take his job – and run it from North County. He said “sure!” … and even moved us here! 🙂
At a macro level, while our company may not be a household name to many, the technology developed at VMware has had a profound impact on how we all (knowingly or not) use technology everyday, and I’m proud to be associated with a company that has in many ways changed the world. On a more personal note, I get to work with so many talented, ambitious and brilliant people on a daily basis, the best part is seeing these people on our team both succeed and ascend to greater roles and responsibilities within our organization and company. It’s happened a lot!
Too many to choose from! Living in Leucadia across the street from Fish 101 makes that an easy call, but I love Union and Birdseye Kitchen, too. Stoked for a good ramen place to open up … c’mon, Rooster Ramen!
So many to mention … some cool ones can be seen here: “>
Historically I have worked from home when not traveling for business (which I do a lot) … but there’s something more stimulating to be in an office environment with other people. BLOC offers a relaxed atmosphere with great energy, and I’m genuinely excited to come into the office to chat the great people here and help build the terrific vibe that already exists.
