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.
