It’s time for In Your Neck of the Woods Tuesday again!
Today, we’re learning more about Michael Murphy, a long-time reader of The Savvy Freelancer:
Name, admitted age and how old you feel?
Michael R. Murphy. 38 but feels like can swing pretty wildly between 13 and 83 depending on the week I’ve had.
Canuck or Yankee? or Other?
What do you do as a freelancer?
I own a web design and development company that’s just starting to focus on specializing in outsourced development for agencies of all kinds.
Still employed or freelance all the way? Or still dreaming of freelancing?
I left full-time employment for someone else about 3 years ago.
What song are you currently listening to over and over and over again?
I have pretty diverse musical tastes but Coheed and Cambria is always in very heavy regular rotation and lately Macklemore and Snoop Lion’s albums get played pretty regularly.
Who was the last person you said “I love you” to?
My fiancee (just minutes ago).
How would you describe yourself? Glass half-full or half-empty?
I’m generally pretty positive but running a business and being responsible for *everything* can get a little overwhelming sometimes. I’m always working on changing that.
Do you have a private stash of junk food? If so, where do you hide it?
I try to keep anything I don’t want to eat ALL of out of the house to begin with 😉
Chocolate or chips?
iOS or Android?
PC or Mac?
Mac primarily (but I do have a PC for testing/development)
Best vacation ever?
Best vacation ever is probably last summer’s trip to Northern California for a friend’s wedding. The wedding was wonderful and after we spent some time in the Tahoe (gorgeous!) and then the Bay areas. We loved it so much we considered moving there (Tahoe).
What’s one item on your bucket list?
I’ve traveled overseas a little but the bucket list includes living overseas (Paris or somewhere in Ireland) for at least a year.
Could you give up your cell phone for a week?
I would love to give up my cell phone. But I don’t think my clients would be very happy about that.
