Working in Pawnee

IT’S BEEN ALMOST A YEAR SINCE I’VE QUIT THE FILM BUSINESS, which isn’t to say I didn’t like it. But it’s nice to have some variety as well as being able to prove that my experience translates. The coolest part about my current job is my team. I think we’ve hit a real stride in […]
