So far this new year, I have only been in San Francisco for the first two weeks of the year. That time was spent furiously working on my new portfolio site, which many of you are now seeing for the first time. Welcome!
When designing this site, my goal was to effectively communicate who I am and what I do in one concise package. My previous portfolio site failed at that; I focused on coding the site myself rather than on the work I was presenting. To avoid that mistake this time around I used SquareSpace to build my site, which I highly recommend.
After I finished redesigning my site, I left San Francisco to stay with my family in LA for a few weeks. I struggled with the decision to go; it didn't make sense for many reasons, but I’ve learned that what makes sense isn’t necessarily what you are supposed to do.
My time with my family was fun, but also productive. We discussed creative ideas, planned for the future, and laughed a lot. When I realized my resume was severely lacking, they helped me create a better one. We are uniquely united in our vision for the future and will work relentlessly to see it manifest.
From the time I arrived in LA, things began to fall in place; opportunities began to line up. There is nothing like being in the right place at the right time for the right reason in the right season.
I’ve been saying this for a while, but I will continue to speak it into existence: It’s time to begin.
