Just This

Well, hello.

I’ve had more blogs than most people have had apartments. I’ve had more apartments than most people have had apartments, come to think of it.

Sometime last year, I realized I was ready for a change. I probably realized it several years ago, but sometimes you need a little bit of time to come around to yourself. So when, just before my 30th birthday, I got a job offer to work with the best-known (and arguably most important) film festival in the country, I leapt at the opportunity. I spent four months working with amazing people and amazing filmmakers and I’m proud to say I was part of making the 2013 Sundance Film Festival happen.

But I knew going into it that I’d be where I am today. I knew when I took the job that it was a finite opportunity, scheduled to end mid-February and I’d have to figure out where I’d go from there.

I decided on India.

So here I am, less than a week from jumping on a plane to New Delhi and I decided to start this new site as a way to keep track of it all – my travels, of course, but also my next steps. I haven’t been unemployed since I was 15, before I got my first job as an assistant in a home office. In fact, more often than not I’ve had two or three jobs at once.

Now, I’m ready for a leap. I’m ready for the next great opportunity in this thing called life, ready to do what I want to be doing for a living, ready to work for it and go for it. I’m sure there’ll be more on that later.

I’m currently in Utah. I’ll be in California for a couple days, then India for a few weeks, then I’m not really sure where. San Francisco? Applied for a gig there. DC? Yep, there too. New York, Los Angeles or London? Some poor HR sap in all those places has my resume on their desk.

Wherever I land, I hope you’ll be a part of it.
