I'm still a little surprised to tell people that I work for Acquia. My fascination with Drupal started in late 2007 and quickly turned into an addiction. While building my first large project, I spent countless hours on drupal.org meeting cool people and getting advice from the Drupal community. Then in February, I found out about Acquia and kept a close eye on them as they filled up their roster with some amazing talent. At the time, I was living in Boulder, Colorado, hard at work on VeloNews.com. Acquia seemed like a dream job, but it also seemed to be a world away.
