Final Project

I was thinking about an i dea for a final project. The ideas i had were typical and would not be as engaging as i would like. i recently encountered a few people who were interested in my work and proposed an interesting offer. They are a non profit organization and who travel overseas to the west indies. Their goal is to provide free health care people people in need, their main goal eventually is to open a health institution permanently for these individuals. My role in this is to simply document these occurrences. I was told that my part in this will be fully credited and and might even be the go to person for their media production. I am vey excited about this opportunity and i hope everything goes as planned.


So I began to blog about myself. To create an awareness of my work and who I am to any potential followers I developed a blog where people can be a part of my ideas and productions.

making a web presence

I’ve always had an interest in graphic design and the fne arts, but I’ve been incredibly lazy on developing a web presence based on these skills. My full name is really common, so finding me through Google is next to impossible. My preferred nickname is even more common, so finding me that way is looking for a needle in the Internet haystack. I also keep changing my Internet and social network handles quite frequently. I’ve been using the Internet since I was 9, and I’ve always been closing accounts associated with my actual name if I ever used it and I tried to be a person who can’t be found so easily via the Internet.

As far as social networks go, I have a Facebook and a Like page that I update with a daily comic strip. My personal Facebook page is locked down and is extremely private. I’m not sure if I want to change my Twitter handle back to katbot8900, because if I did I’d probably make it a private account because I’m not sure how a potential employer would feel if I had all my political commentary out on blast.

I am taking Web Design 1 and I have been learning how to code my own site, so I plan on buying a domain name with the handle I use for this blog, katbot8900 to use as a portfolio site.  Karen Kavett has a great example of a portfolio site that intergrates personal projects and other social media that I aspire to have. I’d like to use WordPress as a template to code the site.  I’d like to get to that point within one to two years and to become that prolific of an artist.


Cultivating Your ‘Real Name’ or Not

When I searched my name the first profile that I came across was not mine, in fact it was a Facebook profile of someone much older that I am. However the second profile was mine and it was my linked in profile that I kind of neglected, I don’t think that this is a bad thing that my linked in page showed up because, on my linked in profile I feel that my image is positive and this is great for me if I am searched by companies. The results that I received from my search simply means that I have to do a lot more work on my linked in account to make sure enough information is on there, also the information that is on there is up to date and are ones that I would like employers to see.

Also what I found when I searched my name was my sound cloud profile, and this is also a  neglected account. Finding these neglected accounts is bad because I would like to have them fully functional and good because my image is not negative on these sites. My aim is to transform these sites so that they don’t look incomplete. A goal that I have is completing my portfolio site, when it is finish I would like my name to be associated with that site. This  means that, I will put my name in many places as possible in an effective way on the site so that it shows up on search engines.

Cultivating my “real name.”

As I searched for my own name, I can honestly say I was satisfied. My LinkedIn, Facebook, and Vimeo accounts were in the top five results on google. It would’ve been nice to see my Vimeo account come first since that’s where I displayed all of my work (which I think is what really matters) but I’m not gonna freak out if they check out my Facebook account either. Facebook is a social network FIRST before anything else, so if they discover something about me that they don’t like, I’m not going to hold myself accountable for it on a professional level. It’s not a professional website. I disagree with self-censorship as well, given MY career path I don’t think it’s necessary if you have the skills required for the job.

In order to get my Vimeo account higher in google, I figured that maybe increasing its activity would work out, so that’s what I’m doing. I’m home writing short stories and have begun collaborating with people on other story ideas that I’m really excited about. Good things are going on and progress is definitely being made.

Cultivating My Real Name

One of the first links that comes up when I google searched my name was a 411 site that had my name, address, and home telephone. Instead of wasting time trying to figure out how to get rid of that information entirely, I decided with the advice of Professor Smith, that it would be best to push that information down in order to highlight things that I actually want future employers to see.

With that in mind I finally began to work on a site. It’s something I had been thinking about for a while but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to approach it. I’m beginning with a free hosting service so the url is unnecessarily long. It’s not a bad thing as of now though. I’m going to post all my work and make it something like a portfolio and eventually I will purchase my own domain and make it legit.

For now, I think this will be a good way to push other things down.This will allow me to link my twitter, youtube, facebook, and vimeo accounts to my work and the presence that I want to show. I want to create a new facebook that’s strictly business. I want to strip the attachment of my name with my current facebook simply because it’s more of a friend and family environment and I really don’t even use it at all. I want to attach myself with something that I will use and that will be easier if I start all over and actually use it this time around.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Watch Peoples Back



The inspiration for this Giff was derived from watching most of my Professor’s Giff works. The background picture was a jpeg of Tom Hanks face imposed on a bear while the looped birds clips was ripped from the movie “The walking Dead”. The animated face that substituted the Tom Hanks face was Eddie Murphy take in the movie “Coming to America”
