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.

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”

All came to life using Adobe Photoshop CS6

Real Name police

My  real name is  a storm when  i search my  name  on  the  web  i got  over  fifty names  of  Patricia Harris. when added  my  middle  initial, it  got even  more. Most  of  them  were  powerful  and  career  women some  them  are  government  officials  who  are in their     50s,60, and  70 years of age. when  i spelling out  my  middle  name  i  came  across  ten  women that share the  same  full  name  with  me surprisingly. i was  able to  fine  myself by  putting my  age that  the  only  way  i  could  identify the  patricia harris  i am. it  seems scary. i think i will  continue  to use  my nickname on  social media  pages. as  i am  doing  right now. I could’not  see and  of  my  social media  pages  because  in  nick names.

My Online Identity

I have come to the realization that I need to build a presence on the internet. When I google my full name (Alfred Parsard) it brought up a slew of things related to me. The first thing that popped up was my old radio show that I used to host online. The second result that was listed was my twitter account. This is very important since it shows that people can find me on the internet if they look me up. My Youtube page came up third.

updating my web presence

Well it was very disappointing when I did not find my name in a google search. Even though I dont heavily keep up my web  presence, or on twitter on a daily basis, I thought I had a decent web presence. The one thing I found was a pic of me from Linkedin. I know what my problem is. The problem is that I dont keep the same name in all my social media sites. for example in twitter my handle is andresuarez2, youtube its andrevid100, motion graphics course: asuarez345, portfolio course: darklorddre, etc. my only web presence that has pure name is facebook and linkedin.

I know what I have to do its simple, I just have to make sure change my name on the social media sites to have my pure name. The other thing that is a major issue for me is that I have to learn to up date everything that I have  on the web at least on a monthly basis. For example when I make new work it takes me like 6 months to add it to my site. So I definitely have to update my site and all my social media profiles more frequently.

Lastly I have realized while being in york that it is very important to be apart of the online community. before coming to york I was very private, and did’nt want to use social media sites at all. since the 2 years I have been here I have opened up more to the idea of social media. Now what have to do is actually engage it more. for example I have a twitter account but dont really use it and that I would like to change. I would like to have a little following, it would be nice to have people see my work. If I want more and more people to see my work I definitely have to put more of effort in making it more easy for people to find me.


Almost There

When i google searched myself, i realized that my portfolio (blog) doesn’t show up first. Instead, the work that i’ve done in most of my classes showed up. This can only mean one thing; My portfolio is not organized or linked to all of my work. Im not much of a blogger, so to further enhance my identify on my portfolio  i need to link all of my work to it, so when my name is entered in google search, my portfolio which initials all of my work, will pop up first and my work can be visible.

How will I cultivate my online “Samson Seligson”?

What did I find:

When I searched myself on Google, I knew immediately that all of the links would be of me. I mean think about it, how many people have the name Samson Seligson?

The top 5 links that came up were my LinkedIn profile, my sound cloud profile,
my “Halloween-DS106” project, my “electro-acoustic collage” project, and my Twitter profile. After that were two After Effects projects from YouTube, my Facebook profile, and my personal website-

What will I do:

This search made me realize first, if someone were to look me up they would think that I’m more of a sound person, which I’m not. Granted that the Halloween project is meant to advertise my voice acting skills, but the title doesn’t show that.

I was happy to see that my LinkedIn came up first and that I have kept it up to date.

Something that bothered me was the fact that my website came up at the bottom of the page. I realize that one major reason is that my name Samson Seligson doesn’t actually show up together anywhere on the site. I will need to change that. Furthermore, if HR sees my website and clicks on it, its just not updated and I don’t post much of my work, forget that there is a process to the work. So what I want to do with my website is to update it with projects and attempt to post any day that I do work and explain what I’m doing even if it’s a paragraph or a sentence.

Making projects is key to keeping me out there and fresh. If I find that I “don’t have anything to do” I can always make something for my final project. My final project was outlined here by Larissa several weeks back.
