New Media Stories #001

From Tracy Pattin,

“I’d love to tell my story! 

It was summer 2006. I was at the UCLA Writer’s Faire where attendees can sample (for free!) the upcoming Fall classes and teachers. When I walked into that classroom, I knew something was different. Then Doug and Roseanne Welch started speaking about creativity and New Media. It was clear they couldn’t wait to share with the standing-room-only class, that the world, (AND cyberworld) had opened up to creatives like never before. With the evolution of blogs, podcasts and social media, you could actually distribute what you create from your laptop. 

My heart started racing, I wanted to jump up and down and cheer! Finally, we have the power to get our messages out, not only to the country but to the entire world. From that moment, that one class, I made a decision to change my life. 

Today? I’ve produced 30 audio podcasts, 10 video podcasts, hundreds of blogs and now I’m about to launch my own podcast show. I’m also a consultant with my own company, SizzleCaster.  It’s fun when people ask me what I do. All I have to say is, “I’m a New Media producer.” That feels great. And it feels great to love every moment of my new career.

Thanks Doug and Roseanne!”
