When did you first start using the internet as a creative outlet
to show your projects?
Exact dates are fuzzy but I’m sure it was after 2000. I started
to work with a friend on a web design for a personal website. It
quickly became clear that I was a little picky for direct collaboration.
So My Space was a perfect answer. I started throwing my stuff up
there: music, acting clips, blog type musings on life. Then Wendy
was kind enough to make me look legit with a www space on the internet.
Have you gotten much feedback through
your MySpace accounts for your music and acting?
Yes some very kind comments and support. Even some offers of work
from My Space. But I see the limitation of the internet as “face
in the crowd syndrome”. It’s so easy to get lost in
a sea of other websites and other creativity. As with everything
the challenge seems to be standing out, driving...attention towards
whatever you are trying to sell
Has your official website served as sort of an online business card?
Do people ask if you have one often?
Not as much as you might think. I think people love to anonymously
discover things. When they come across it they can devote as much
time to viewing as they want. There is no pressure that you will
call back and say, “how’d you like my stuff.”
If they can view it on their own time and like it or not I think
that makes people more comfortable. But again you have the challenge
of how to let people “discover” your site instead of
them just writing you off as another face in the crowd.
What do you hope to accomplish over
the next year through networking online?
Online submissions: I hope to submit myself for acting projects
via video, over the internet. It seems like that’s kind of
a wave of the future.
