It Lives!

I am proud to announce that the new Trypnotik Visual is now live and direct, at long last.  The story of it’s rebirth is long, and boring.  I was planning on writing a drawn-out, cheer-leading hooray all about how excited you are for me, and how this new Web site is going to change your life for the better.  I got to the end of the second sentence and realized that i had nothing to write about, and even if I did it would be the most dull string of lies that has ever been strung since the other guy from Wham tried picking up dudes in bars.

All I want to do is work on the Internet, for some type of small to medium sized business. I don’t have any office experience besides, and I don’t know a lot about job titles and what they mean.
With my experience, what types of jobs should I be looking for?

Good Morning Future

Welcome to the first post in a new blog.  The sky is pretty much the limit for this puppy.  I am not going to attempt to pigeonhole this project, but it is not my intention to make this a completely personal blog either.  The goal of this project is to document my career progress.  A brief history of what brought me to this point can be found by clicking the biography link in the menu above.
