Mix For Carrot Creative

(originally posted on What's Protocol?)

So for the past .

Every since graduating.

…Since the beginning of time, I have been searching for a job. A real job, a good, fulfilling, enjoyable, meaningful job that I can call a real career. Maybe it’s a pipe dream, but I have convinced myself that I am going to find a job that I’m going to completely love. One of those “not your ordinary workplace” type of jobs in a cool environment with smart, funny, progressive thinking, coworkers working together to create, market, produce, advertise, cook, bake, build, make, design…whatever it is that they do.

I’ve come across a few of these companies/businesses in my search but it wasn’t until about a week ago that I found out that Carrot Creative was hiring. ThisBrooklyn, NY based full service social media agency exudes all of the qualities of the type of company I dream of working for. Progressive, different, Smart, with enjoyable atmosphere. You know “hip” and “cool”. Well, I’m hip(?), I’m cool (?), (right?).

Since they are quite progressive and forward thinking, their hiring process is quite different from your average “send us your resume and cover letter and if you happen to know somebody who works here maybe we’ll get back to you” type of business. Right on their website they say they get lots of applications, and if you want to “stand out from all the noise, figure out how to get our attention”.

So Carrot Creative. That’s what I’m doing. I’m calling you out!


I LOVE music. And I LOVE sharing it (that’s why I’m here, duh) so I scoured, searched (stalked?) many of your Twitters, Blogs, personal websites, etc to try and figure what kind of music you all enjoy. Then I combined that with what I enjoy, and realized it’s not all that different! (how bout that!)

So, the following mix was created completely with you in mind, you little Carrots you.

I hope you enjoy it. And maybe possibly hire me, or at the very least, call me for aninterview? Be friends? Commission me to make you monthly mixes? ___(insert exceptional, fantastic, and wonderful opportunity here____

Pictures Return!!!

Back when I was in college I used to draw lots of pictures during class and scan them into my computer and post them up on here. Now that I'm working, I draw lots of pictures...and (plan on) scan(ing) them into my computer and post(ing) them up on here.

I now give to thee, pictures from work. Maybe you'll see a few others from the archive of my college days but most of these will be from the past 2 months at work.

Fleeting Blues

2008 marked the release of one of the most beautiful albums I've heard (dare I say ever?) in quite some time. Fleet Foxes' self titled release has been in my rotation since then and I have been patiently waiting for more music from these guys.

Finally my wish has been granted!

The boys are set to release their new album "Helplessness Blues" in early May and I can't be more excited. Also, in conjunction with the new album they are going out on tour and have promised to "go everywhere [we] they are wanted".
