Back from Portland (plus my Photojojo video-resume)

20130427-StumptownComicsFestival2013-IMG_4505

Even with some great press (like this SF Chronicle piece), I’ve honestly been in a funk lately. I’m always happy when I’m making things, but then there’s the times where I have to deal with real people stuff, like being broke and jobless. There have been a few job offers that I’ve turned down because I just don’t want to do community management stuff anymore. At least, not the Facebook contests/constant multitasking/boring stuff. There are times though, when funds are tight, I feel like I should just take any crummy community job that’s been offered to me and that I’ve wasted the last few months on stupid stuff.

So I was hoping I’d actually have a good time at Portland’s Stumptown Comics Fest (pictured above), but the lack of sales at my table just hit me when I was already feeling down. The only part of the trip that I really enjoyed, however, was all the time I had to make stuff. I spent the bulk of the 18 hour train ride to Portland working on a remix for the amazing Sean Hayes and working on some tracks in Nanoloop.

Somewhere along the ride I started getting emails from folks telling me about a new job listing at Photojojo. Seriously, I had about a dozen people forward the job to me. While traveling I felt like I didn’t have a chance to work on a resume and job application, so I put together this quick video response a temporary “resume”:

I haven’t heard back from the Photojojo team yet, but it’s been cool to see the positive reaction my video has received around the net. If I don’t end up getting the job, maybe I’ll at least be able to cash in on a “finders fee” if the folk who does get it found the job through me 🙂

edit: I never heard back from the Photojojo crew. I bumped into the person who was hiring the position and she said she never received my resume… or saw it on Twitter… or saw it on Laughing Squid. Okay.

    Sorry to hear you’re feeling down! Good luck on the Photojojo app. I can’t think of a better person for the job.
