I had a viral video in which I interviewed a woman getting her anus tattooed — not something you can put on just any resume! But it was a career peak in many ways. It was on Bill Maher, MTV, it was everywhere. A lot of the work I did 7+ years ago a music/culture editor at an alt weekly definitely doesn't fall into the "professional" category, and it's ON THE INTERNET FOREVER, lol. Honestly, I wish I could share this stuff because it requires some savvy and skills. But it's supposed to be embarrassing now that I'm older and culture has changed. I sort of hate the "professional" world for making us pick and choose sides of ourselves to share, even if they're sides that could help us with our current work.
