I'm Ready For My Close-Up, Mr. Deville...

So today, Vertafore sent a film crew to the Data Center in College Station to film us doing over everyday work. The AMS User's Group will show the film at the annual conference in Washington DC later this month.

All day I avoided the camera. I worked at my desk, left my desk when I saw the cameraman coming, and stayed away as long as I could. Until the end of the day.

I was asked to "run into" one of my colleagues and make something up. At first I came up with a billing issue but that turned out to be too negative and we shook our heads negatively. That was bad, apparently, so I came up with a backup that would arrive at a customer's site ahead of schedule, which was positive and our heads nodded positively.

So that was my Hollywood moment. Thrills!

I think you're fabulous and I am hiring you an agent.

Thank you. I'll take on the niche role of the fat, white, geeky neighbor (think Kevin Smith in "Live Free or Die Hard")
