Just a short post to congratulate my longtime friend Steve-O on quitting his job at a prestigious Wall Street law firm so that he and his wife can pursue their dream of being scuba instructors somewhere in paradise.
For those unfamiliar with my background, my first job out of law school (where I met Steve-O) was at a similar firm. While these places compensate you very well for your services, I found the work wholly unrewarding and discovered that large law firms are where douchebags who are intelligent but are devoid of creativity or personality go to roost (no disrespect to the group of big firm friends reading this, i’m not talking about you).
Steve-O has been talking about jumping ship (no pun intended) for a long time. Props to him for giving something else a go. New York will miss The O, although i’m not too sure he’ll miss New York.
I have added a link on the right side of the page labeled “Team Schmoop,” which is the name of his webpage (also designed and set up by the inimitable Jon Marston). You can directly link to it here as well. As you can see, Steve is much better at doing stuff with his website than I am.
Good luck Steve and Andrea!
