When I put this site together in 2010, I wasn't sure what the future held for me as far as work opportunities went. I felt like I might be at a bit of a crossroads and wanted to have some sort of online presence to point potential employers to. Shortly after getting DavidSous.com up and running, however, I discovered that the old adage was true: "It's not what you know, but who you know."
My girlfriend at the time (who is now my wife!) got my foot in the door at a company called 51 Minds Entertainment, which specialized in reality television. I was incredibly fortunate to be given that opportunity and to be surrounded by unbelievably talented and kind people who guided me into that world and allowed me to grow as an editor. Despite some of the stigmas associated with the genre, I have loved (and continue to love) the work, which is challenging, creative, and diverse.
Fortunately, one job led to another, and another, and another, almost entirely by word of mouth recommendations and the occasional forwarding of a resumé. Needless to say, this website didn't end up getting a lot of use, and a "reel" has rarely if ever been necessary, so that project fell by the wayside and has been all but abandoned at this point. Nevertheless, I thought it time to dig up the old Squarespace password and tidy things up here, and I may try to keep up with a this blog a little more. The resumé has been updated, and perhaps I'll even get around to throwing an up-to-date reel together in the near future.
So that's it...I couldn't bare to look at that lonely first post below and not write SOMETHING here to make it feel more alive!
