    I think for me, what stood out was you both talking about this is still a work in progress and Jordan's reasons for bringing this all about. When I first saw people hash tagging #hvtalentbase on twitter, it immediately struck me "why am I not on there?" Which is why I immediately reached out to Jordan. There was some good points brought up such as will this be a launch pad to actually get hired places, or how you can't post multiple images for a work in progress .. But, Im pumped, because I am a full time freelancer and it can get a little disheartening sometimes to know that so much creative work is in "The City" so hopefully this will really jump start the Hudson Valley creative economy.

    I will say though, I have been on here for only a couple weeks, and I did have someone reach out already for possible work. It ended up falling through for now because of budget, but I was still pleasantly surprised to have someone reach out and tell me they found me on HV Talent Base, and hopefully the connection will continue through the years.

    That's great! Thanks for letting me know. Yes, I already have had 2 interviews through this site - one for Jordan and the other was March Gallagher - which came out two weeks ago.

    I feel the same way about work "in the city". I was interviewed in the Poughkeepsie Journal for the Gig Economy story and they asked me about,"isn't it great having the city so close for resources?" I responded that I am sick of that assumption that it's so great to have the city close. It's not that close, and it's not that convenient to go there. I'd rather have the resources and clients HERE, so I don't have to waste 4 hours traveling to/from the city.

    You might also be interested in the episodes with Bianca Hendricks (episode 11) and Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory (episode 21). Both cover some of the economic and cultural shifts in Poughkeepsie. Also Sarah Lee with Think Dutchess (episode 13).
