This is the strangest post I've written since I joined this website in June 2006 (!!), and as I think you all know, I've writtena lotof verystrangeposts: next Tuesday, November 1, will be my last day at Dealbreaker.

This is the best job I've ever had, which probably explains why I've spent a third of my life here. When a large part of your professional responsibilities are to write fan fiction about Steve Cohen and Guy Fieri-- and then have an actor bring those tales to life in the basement of dimly-lit TriBeCa bar-- you don't have much to complain about.

There aren't too many other jobs that could make me think about leaving DB,* but the opportunity to keep writing about Wall Street in my own semi-disturbed way at Vanity Fair's The Hive turned out to be one of them. I'll be starting over there on November 9 and hope you'll come visit.

I'm super excited about the opportunity while simultaneously sad about the thought of leaving a place I've been with since I was 21 (!) years-old. I'll save the TLDR Oscar acceptance thank-yous and reminiscences for next week and for now just say I LOVE YOU ALL.

Housekeeping: Dealbreaker Is Looking For Columnists

Do you want to write things on Dealbreaker? We are looking for a few more regular columnists to write regularly on the areas of their expertise and interest. Topics could include private equity, hedge funds, b-school, stripping one’s way through b-school, or something that has absolutely nothing to do with any of those things but which you are particularly passionate about. Topics like "what I am thinking about this week" or "finance!" will probably be less successful. If you are interested, and can commit to writing a column each week or so, please get in touch and tell us who you are (a resume if you want, or just what you do) and what you'd like to write about. A sample post on your idea would also be great. As always, if you are currently gainfully employed on Wall Street (and would like to stay that way) for a firm that would not look favorably on a part-time writing career, anonymous/pseudonymous columns are fine.
