    I think the move to the eastern side is nice. It's still a great view of the new Bay Bridge and it's way easier for me to get over there from Oakland, where I'll be staying.

    That's what makes it so great -- dude disappeared for a half decade, maybe more. Now he's back working with some pretty big names and seems to be a good fit for this, could be wrong though!
