Job #16 - Day Receptionist

The above is Bigfoote’s timelapse video of NYC during Hurricane Irene

Remember Job #6, the double-booking receptionist job that I couldn’t do?

They invited me back.

This place is amazing. Bigfoote is a music production studio that makes tracks for commercials for GoogleSmirnoff, Adobe, Mercedes… go ahead and listen for yourself.

Their studio overlooks Union Square and they have a kitchen with food! For lunch I made a real ham and cheese sandwich on organic bread and a side of all-natural blue tortilla chips.

My last day there I got talking to the co-owner of the place, and told him my journey through working on several TV shows and now starting to pursue writing and performing myself. I said I’m working paying jobs as much as possible, hitting the comedy theaters almost every night, performing with an improv team, and writing with a sketch team. He listened and nodded and said, “I think you’re on the right track.” That’s good to hear from someone I consider successful in the creative world!
