Do you have one in mind? Someone asked me that today. As a writer and photographer what would be your dream job?
Working with CBC comes to mind. Profiling people especially. One on one’s like what Peter Mansbridge and Barbara Walters do. I’ve spoken with Prime Ministers, famous actors, even drug addicts and street people. I’m not afraid to speak with celebrities or humans of high stature. In fact I enjoy the challenge to see them speak at ground level. Feet planted firmly. Laughter in the air. One on one like humans. Demystified.
I’d totally dig a job on The Hour with George Stoumboulopoulos http://www.cbc.ca/thehour/. I love eye candy and what the digital world can fuse with the real thing. That rocks my world. I totally approve of the direction CBC is going with their news. It’s what we were doing in 2004 with The New VI when Moses Znaimer came to town.
I suppose I most appreciate interviewing people. Learning. Hearing their stories and taking some form of inspiration from each and sharing it with the world. To make a difference.
In my youth I constantly wrote down what I thought to be captivating quotes. From books, movies, people or ideas that randomly popped into my head. I have scores of notebooks with one-liners. Jibber jabber here and there.
Since I’ve done the film, the television, the magazine, web, photography, writing, event activations and the newspaper thing making it all come together digitally would be super sweet. The how to do what you’re passionate about, but technically challenged at and oh, minor inconvenience… need to credit the bank account with occasionally too.
So to summarize my dream job involves writing, photography, film and television, digital animation, people and making a difference by inspiring the world with other people’s stories. So there!
