Vancouver Vacation

It’s been over a month since I finished my NAB Spotlight posts and almost two since NAB itself. Since getting back from Vegas both Loretta and I have been working pretty much non-stop and it was time for a well-needed vacation. Now that things are starting to slow down, I can get back to getting posts out.

Freelancing: Finding Work

For the first time in my career I’m now working as a full-time freelancer. Not having a staffed position is new to me and freelancing has a steep learning curve. But as I pick things up I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned in a series of blogs called Freelancing.

Many people think freelancing as a creative means just that, being creative. But as a freelancer you have to be just as much (maybe more so) business minded. Part of that business is finding your next job.

2014: A Post Mortem

The holidays have come and passed and 2014 has come to a close. As we move forward in the new year it’s important to look back at all that 2014 was so that we can make the best of 2015. For me, this year can be described in one word: transition. I started the year as a grad student in Chicago, moved to San Francisco, was in LA for a while, and am now working as a full-time freelancer. It’s been a great year with lots of ups, some downs, and has finally started me down the path I want to be on.

Finally Home!

Well folks, after a two month stint in Los Angeles, to finish up classes for my MFA, I’m finally back home in San Francisco. Loretta and I have a great place to set up in the sunset and we’re both looking forward to what the future has for us. I haven’t checked in for a while, so being back seems like a good time to do so!

A Meager Update

Hey everyone. Sorry for not having a real post this week. I have been super slammed with work. Facebook's IPO has everyone in a frenzy and that means big news. But, I have some more product reviews, tutorials, and general intrigues coming up on the...
