Resume closeup


For this new portfolio website, I figured a good place to start would be my résumé. Since I have the luxury of not actually looking for a job at the moment, I decided to have fun with it, typing it as a single block of text using a 1940s Royal Typewriter I picked up at a thrift store. The typewriter, clearly labeled as the former property of “C. Brown,” was mostly working; with a few adjustments and some gentle swearing I was able to hunt-and-peck my way through it. You’ll note that towards the end, I figured out the lowercase “l” was intended to be used for “1,” not the uppercase “I.” After typing the résumé, I was able to re-align the left margin and un-stick the A and 5 keys, which I regret, because I’ll never be able to type anything this charming again.
