Wes Naman & Joy Godfrey

Freshly home from Japan, photographer Wes Naman joins us with his assistant photographer Joy Godfrey to help us kick off Thursday morning with mimosas aplenty and the backstories behind some of their most excellent photographic adventures and projects. Besides sharing the insanity of their recent TV appearance in Tokyo, Wes and Joy chat about their 505 Faces project, going viral with his invisible tape series, and what it means to pay your dues as a freelancer.

Host Peri Pakroo is joined by Pyragraph Contributing Editor Josh Stuyvesant.

Actor Ashlee Renz-Hotz

New York-based actor and writer Ashlee Renz-Hotz is neck-deep in creative work. She joined us in the Pyragraph studio to chat about her work on stage and in film, her post-apocalpytic Greek tragedy screenplay, living and studying in England and Australia, and whether 50 Shades of Grey is worth the hype. We didn't let her leave without promising to write more about the actor/writer's life for Pyragraph!

Host Peri Pakroo is joined by Pyragraph Contributing Editors Josh Stuyvesant and Jeremy Kinter.

Pyragraph Turns 2!

You may or may not know that Self-Employed Happy Hour is produced by Pyragraph, an online creative career magazine for creatives worldwide. It's Pyragraph's second birthday, so we thought it would be a grand idea for Pyragraph's founder Peri Pakroo to chat with the other editors and core Pyragraph folks about Pyragraph's first two years, and how Peri found herself launching an online magazine after a couple decades working in publishing.

We also talk about Albuquerque's burgeoning creative scene, the challenges of online publishing, struggling to untangle TinyPass and MailChimp, whether Pomplamoose are sellouts, and so much more!

Peri is joined by Pyragraph editors Sage Harrington, Josh Stuyvesant and Jeremy Kinter; Outreach Manager Cara Tolino, Creative Resident Mary Holyoke, and JAK Media owners/photographers Kendra Crooks and Austin Madrid.
