I’ve decided to resign from my job at Planet Argon, after much consideration. At least in the short term, I’m planning to use this as an opportunity to focus on a few projects of my own, particularly Yog’s Notebook, but also some programming and writing and art things and so on.
However, since the contents of my bank account are finite, I need to line up some kind of paid employment. In particular, I’m looking for freelance and contract work. Here are things I know how to do:
Programming. Ruby. Rails. Perl (if I spend a day or two getting used to the syntax again). I’d also like to dabble in a little desktop application development on the Mac.
Project management. I am very good at breaking big things into bite size pieces and figuring out how to get it done.
Design. I can do HTML and CSS (standards compliant, yes). I’ve been learning to use InDesign for page layout, and response to my work there has been good. I’m interested in learning more about user interaction design principles.
Photography. See my Flickr account for examples.
Writing. The obvious example is this blog, but I also have a lot of experience with writing in a business context.
I’ll be at PA through the 21st, then take the rest of the week as a little mini-vacation to read and play video games and generally slack off. We hope to have the zine printed by around then, too, so there may be some kind of release party that weekend. After that, back to work.
