When I was originally interviewed for the position, I hadn't touched an espresso machine for years, could barely pronounce "Capogiro" & was completely alien to the Philadelphia food culture... which is (to date) my most beloved attribute of the city. (You had me at Pho, Philly.)
For the last 6 years, I have learned more about being a well rounded, responsible, pseudo professional person than I ever imagined I could muster. I am thankful to Capogiro for that, much more & specifically the following (in no particular order);
- Dan's back massages & post-it-note illustrations [pic. right]
- Sarah's grace under fire
- John's dry humor & colorful pants
- Steph's mentoring, light mothering & high pitched frustrated voice
- My introduction of avocados
- A lifetime's worth of experiences
Before I get more sappy, I'd like to show you some of my favorite Capogiro projects and sign off. I'm leaving to focus on tattooing full time and being an all around artsy person. The leap is scary & exciting & everything I've ever wanted in life (aside from a big yard with a hammock stretched out between two avocado trees... one day...one day...) Its been an honor & a pleasure, Capogiro. I will miss the mortal crap out of you.
Big kiss, little kiss, big hug, little kiss...
