First and foremost, 10x chooses to represent talent based on their overall creative ability. Accordingly, many of our professionals are accomplished in pursuits beyond their tech careers. Harvard-educated musician, former forensic artist for the Suffolk County Police Department of New York, and meticulous web and graphic designer, Shawn Feeney is a brilliant example of such creative fluency.
Feeney was recognized in Esquire.com last week for his annual Halloween tradition of carving a pumpkin in tribute to a famous musician who had passed away in the past year. Former honorees include Michael Jackson, Ravi Shankar and MCA. This year’s choice was folk musician and environmental activist Pete Seeger, who died on January 27th at the age of 94.
“My job,” he [Seeger] said in 2009, “is to show folks there’s a lot of good music in this world, and if used right it may help to save the planet.” (via The New York Times)
This isn’t the first time Feeney’s musician-pumpkins have sparked larger interest: he’s carved The White House’s Halloween display and also won the reality TV show called Halloween Wars.
