Will work of
food tickets (& travel costs). If you get me there, I will do (just about) anything; ranging from dazzling people with my intelligence/geekyness, giving presentations/speeches, loading and unloading heavy equipment, &/or get you coffee. Note: I am far more experienced at the first two, than the last.
In previous positions I have had the luxury of going to several amazing events; like traveling to India with Geeks on a Plane.
I miss that. Don’t get me wrong, my day job is awesome, but I don’t get to go to as many awesome/geeky activities as I use to (and claim that they are work related).
There are so many great events going on every year where having a resident “handy-man” / “smart guy” / “geek-extraordinaire” might come in handy. In particular there are three events that I really want to go to:
Maker Faire Bay Area (I’d also do New York)
SXSW (It may be a little late this year to swing it…)
Comic-Con (Not quite sure who would pay to send me to Comic-Con, but I still really want to go)
I could afford to go to these events, but it would be hard for me to justify taking time off from work and school AND paying for them… to my wife 😉
So if anyone has need of my experience/expertise, or just another set of hands. I would love to help you out, meet/work with new people, and get to attend any of these events. I’ll take the time off work, if you take care of the rest.
This is where I work
