The Vancouver Observer gets Heganized

(Page 4 of 5)

What’s the journey been like? It’s been up, down, hard, fun, exciting, rewarding. I work in TV, print, film, and radio, so I’ve got multiple career streams. This splits my focus but enhances my overall value and job options. Overall: it beats working in a bank.

 

WD: Who has inspired you along the way?

 

KH: Hunter S. Thompson for yelling truth to power, Steven Soderbergh for his creative work ethic, and of course, that unnamed kid who stood in front of the tanks in Tiananmen Square.

 

WD: What accomplishment are you most proud of, and why?

 

KH: I’m a huge Hunter S. Thompson fan so I’m proud of achieving my childhood dream: getting published in Rolling Stone. So far I’ve published three RS feature stories about campus porn invasions, mascot beatings, and the Rock Paper Scissors Championships. They were tightly-written, thoroughly researched, and really entertaining. They were great US-magazine debuts for me, and these articles opened up a world of TV and print opportunities in New York, Hollywood, and Toronto.

 

WD: How can we access some of your work?

 

KH: Google me or visit my website at www.kenhegan.com

I'll be updating the site soon with my short films and radio performances.

 

WD: What would be your dream job?
