A week turned into a month and now I’ve decided to stay in Chile until the end of the year. The spring is just starting over here, so I moved back to the beach town of Zapallar. I’m starting to catch up with work just now. On the bright side of news I’ve just been commissioned to do the website for the Chilean Museum of Precolombian Art.
My father, Leonardo Prieto Vial, died today. I will be unreachable for the next week.
I’m flying this evening to Santiago to be with my family.
In just 5 days I built SPOON.CL. It took me another week to conceptualize and model it. It is far from finished and I plan to constantly improve and retouch it, but at least it is 100% functional and ready to use. I really need feedback (even at this early stage) so just jump to the bottom and SPEAK UP!
Just lost 2 days of work because of the massive blackout. It caught me in the Subway. 2 hours underground, 1 hour inside the car and another hour escaping through the tracks. An amazing adventure, it’s sad I didn’t have my camera with me. I had to walk, through the tracks, with some other 200 people from 4th Street station to Broadway (F line). Unbelievable. The city that never sleeps had one long nap.
Just posting that I am alive and singing in New York. I’m staying here for as long as possible (my VISA says January 2004).
Having spent the past couple of weeks in London, and enjoyed it thoroughly, my plans have slightly changed, and I’ve rented an apartment in New York, so I’m leaving tomorrow evening to start using it!
I’ve been in London for the past couple of days, but as soon as I got here, my PowerBook wouldn’t power up. After a quick visit to an AppleCare the problem was fixed. So I’m back on track now. Planning to stay in London for at least 15 days. After that, off to Paris.
Still giving the final polishing touches to TWIST Films, but I believe it is complete. Also working for Muaythai (my first northamerican client), Mutante Discos, ELEMENTAL, and of course CHC and Being a Being.
My mobile phone number in the UK (and for all of Europe) is: +44-7818246154.
I’m liking New York more and more each day. I changed my plans a bit, and I’m leaving to London on Wednesday (July 2nd), then coming back to New York around the 15th of August. So newyorkers will have to wait a bit to have me back.
For everyone who’s down in Chile, today is the DJ FOOD event. Starts at midnight, in Centro de Eventos Bellavista (Ex-OZ), the price is Ch$14,000. Don’t miss it.
Hadn’t been able to update this page in a while as I was travelling/preparing the trip.
I’ve been in New York for the past 4 days, the weather is kinda nice although it rains all-day, everyday. I already have my first work request. I’ll be here for another 2 to 3 weeks if you’re interested in soliciting my time for a project, write me a line. I’m still working for my clients back in Chile, and everything is working smoother than expected. I just might be travelling for a little longer than expected.
This globetrotting/freelancing way of life is working out nicely. My mobile phone number in the United States is 1-917-319-2511.
The days by the beach in Zapallar are over. I came back to Santiago to finish planning my trip: for the next 2 months I’ll be visiting New York, Montreal, and London. If all goes well I’ll also be going to Amsterdam, Barcelona and Madrid. If you’re interested in offering me some interesting freelance job to be done while I’m in your city, don’t be shy to contact me.
During the last 4 days, this website has had more visits from the Russian Federation than from Chile, weird. Maybe it’s because I was named “Designer of the Month” by Neopixel (heh, thanks Sergio!)
