Personal Update: Online Identity Crisis?

| | Comments (2)
As this blog continues to evolve, and the wonderful writing of yave begnet, changeseeker, janna, and lividsnails graces pages of Citizen Orange, I wonder if there's still a place to give personal updates about myself.  I hesitate because I really want people that I think are better and more knowledgeable writers than myself, to start taking ownership of this page, while I work to give them more visibility.  Which reminds me, I really have to get my photoshop and web development skills in order so I can change the "about kyle" sections of this blog so that they read, "about the authors".

Still, I thought people would be interested in some of the other things that I've been up to, while I'm not typing up a storm here.  
The title of this post is kind of a joke, but I am having a little bit of trouble negotiating the many roles that I'm playing these days.  In some ways they overlap but not in others, and though I'm a lot more focused than I was just a few years ago, I think it's appropriate to call it a sort of online identity crisis, because through the web it must look like I'm all over the place.  In the end, all you can be is yourself but I guess I'm having trouble projecting that.  Either way these are just a few of the things that I've been up to, lately.

Last Thursday, I got an article published in the Bay State Banner about a local effort in Dorchester, Massachusetts to help the victims of a Mattapan fire.  The article really was a pleasure to write and I hope that it brings much needed attention and funds for the positive things people are doing in local communities, if an "objective" journalist is allowed to say such things.

As many of you know, I'm the Massachusetts representative for the MTV Street Team and am just starting to get the hang of telling a story through video.  I'll embed my first two videos below.

Following those videos you'll also see a video that I made for the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition, that employs me part-time as a new media consultant.  I always appreciate feedback on all of my work.  Enjoy!

Keep up the good work. Your Mattapan Fire article reminds us that there are many good and compassionate people in this world. These stories need to be celebrated and you've done a wonderful job.
