A Little More About Me

April 27, 2012

Okay so normally on this here blog I talk about things like style/fashion, the occasional DIY project and “fun stuff,” i.e. fun things I do out in the “real” world.  For this post, however, I wanted to share a little more about what I do, mostly because I’ve made allusions to my work/projects (NAB convention in Vegas), but also because I promised myself as part of my New Year’s resolution that I would make more of an effort to “put myself out there.”  You see, what I actually get paid to do is edit wedding videos at a local wedding company, but what I’ve also been doing in my spare time for a little over a year now (aside from writing this blog and running my Etsy shop) is working on a pet/animal interest TV show and, most dear to my heart, a brand new documentary telling the amazing stories of a few local animal rescues and sanctuaries.

I have always been a huge animal lover.  I share ownership of four dogs (my baby, Audrey, above) and one cat with my mother, but I also love any and all kinds of animals from pot belly pigs (crossing my fingers we film a pig rescue!) to llamas to, most recently, birds (I have never been a fan of birds, but The Lily Sanctuary completely changed my mind – see one of their cuties below).  It has been an absolute joy filming all of the super cool animal sanctuaries and rescues and learning the stories of their remarkable owners/founders, not to mention the fact that I get to work on this awesome project with my boyfriend.

Here is the TV teaser for our Pet World Insider web series, which will be launching this summer!

If you want to see some more teaser videos from Pet World Insider, you can check us out on our YouTube channel here.  I just wanted to let you in on some of the cool things that I do outside of this blog.  I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of some of the other projects I am working on; I hope to share more as each project progresses!  Thanks for reading :)

    I was creeping your blog and found your “A Little More About Me” page. I always love finding fellow animal lovers!
    Have you ever heard of Born Free USA? They deal with animal rescues, sanctuaries, and activism to stop the capture of wild animals. You should check them out! There is a link to them on my site or you can just google them. Whatever floats your boat. :)
