One year ago this week I received an email that I would be brought onto DC Universe’s freelance news team. The experience has opened doors for me, given some cool experiences and made me a hero to some of the kids from my “secret identity job”. Speaking of jobs, DC Universe kept me busy enough to quit my overnight security job and go full-time freelance (minus the mentoring work I haven’t given up), which I’m forever grateful for.
I’ve been contacted by the production offices of some of my favorite DC shows, have been invited to some great events, and have had some really fun assignments. I’ve felt incredible support from the staff at DC Universe for the past year. If I’ve ever needed help with any resources they’ve always gone above and beyond to help. Whenever I’ve visited Burbank (I live in Tampa), I’ve always had an open invitation to stop by the offices and say hi, where I’ve been welcomed with warm smiles and enthusiastic greetings. In fact, during my first visit I asked my editor if I could see the office and he went above and beyond, first showing me the DC Universe offices, then Warner Brothers lot and then driving me over to DC Entertainment’s headquarters. It was an unforgettable afternoon that would’ve given my inner 11 year old an heart attack.
Everyone is just as friendly and kind-hearted as they act during Office Hours.
Thank you for bringing me onboard and trusting me to put out content for you. I hope I can continue to serve you during year two and beyond.
Happy Birthday DC Universe
