You’re going to like this one.

Picture a sweltering afternoon, 103.6 degrees, in Easton – sliding around the final Sunday afternoon dredges of the Plein Air Festival (it’s heavily reported elsewhere.) The only people left out there in the heat are the festival promoters, volunteers, family and friends of the youth “quick draw” group who are showing their work along Harrison Ave.

And slowly, here comes one of David Geller’s famous banner-advertising bikes. But whoa. This isn’t advertising a local restaurant.

Who’s Ivan? Well, it’s the guy riding the bike! “Australian accent” listed as an asset? Well, sure it is. Of course, I stopped him and we had a conversation. He’s charming, interesting, clever and took it upon himself to try a twist on job hunting. David Geller (cool guy) lets him use a bike and trailer on “off” times – like hot Sunday evenings, when nobody is riding around with already paid-for banners.

So, let’s get this straight. He’s looking for work, it doesn’t have to be a full-time job with benefits (although that could be nice) he’s available on a short term or project basis. Click on the link – http://www.ivan4hire.com – and you’ll get his resume, which includes his experience as a graphic designer, technologist, critical thinker, a writer and editor, a communicator, a typographer, illustrator, animator, pianist. And – my personal favorite skill that he lists on his resume – “careful listener”. Good one.

So, call this guy. Got something on your list that never seems to get done? Have a big project lurking or are you thinking of launching some new social media? Need to re-organize your computer systems or digital files? Call Ivan and give him a shot. At the very least, have him record your business’s telephone answering message with his charming Australian accent. Your business will sound international, you’ll look good and Ivan will have some extra time to charm you into hiring him for more work. WIN WIN.

  1. This is a nice write-up. Thank you, Kathy!

  2. Oh my gosh, what a fabulously creative idea! I hope he gets rich and famous from this. Wouldn’t it be a great story in the Washington Post?
