Also on March 17th, I was interviewed by Rachel Wong for a profile article in The Peak, the weekly SFU student newspaper. It appeared on April 4th:
I’m very happy with how this turned out. Rachel did a fantastic job. Also, my friend and colleague Sasha Ivanochko helped out a lot by taking the photo, which also came out nicely. I guess the more exposure, the better. At the very least, it’s something for my archive.
I think I have to get better with linking experiences together so that, for example, an article like this refers to my blog and vice versa. This way any exposure in the media has the potential to build into a bit of a following. Being interviewed, which can come up suddenly when you’re in the middle of a dozen other things, brings up the importance of maintaining an online presence that people can check out when they hear about you.
