11:39 AM: for hire
aieee! now two fine people i know are jobless! mount hood community college's library didn't have enough for rob to do in the summer, and then leopoldo was laid off from xerox.
leopoldo is a technical project manager & analyst who knows about movies and networks in exquisite detail, but is also a generous mentor and ambitious developer. he is confident, knowledgeable and extremely hard-working. he would ideally like to find a job in a creative field (advertising, PR, film or television development, game development, digital animation) but is open to trying almost anything.
rob has led a librarian's life almost entirely by accident, but has always been an academic. a former english professor, he probably knows more about the historical, cultural and political aspects of music than anyone in the western united states, without being arrogant or elitist about it. he's quietly focused w/ an occasional hyperactive raucous streak, but is always willing to do what's asked of him and do it well. he'd love to teach at an alternative school or write critical articles for a publication.
both of these people make incredibly fine additions to a workplace. they are intelligent, funny & self-sufficient. if you have any leads for either of them, please pass them along!
