Cory Huff 5 October 2009
Imagination is the Tool
Cory Huff has been acting since he was a little kid. That experience informs everything he does. When he approaches new projects he has the attitude that any problem can be solved with a little bit of hard work, solid technique, and a whole lot of imagination.
Cory is first, a good husband. Just check out AgoodHusband.net, the blog he started to explore what marriage means to men. Growing up as the child of a single mother, Cory decided that it was important to learn from the wisdom of other men and he maintains the site as a way to contribute to the general marriage discussion.
Cory started TheAbundantArtist.com as a place for artists to come to learn about Internet marketing. He firmly believes that the starving artist is a myth that must be dispelled. Cory hopes to break down the silos of creativity that people erect within their own lives that force them to compartmentalize their skills and interests. In other words, Cory believes that following your passion will lead you to a fulfilled life, no matter what it is. Cory moved to Portland from Utah in 2007.
Cory also works as a social media consultant for a local search engine marketing firm. He enjoys the social media world immensely and is constantly amazed at the level of talent, creativity, and skill that people bring to the social media realm.
Cory loves his wife, acting, dancing, his XBOX 360, PDX, Order of the Stick comics, and is a die hard University of Utah alumnus. Currently he’s most interested in working on projects that bring artists, technology, and business together in new and creative ways.
What are you up to?
I am working on bringing artists together with technology. There’s never been a bigger opportunity for us to leave the starving artist mentality behind.
What are you into?
I am into theater, dance, singing, being ridiculous, Twitter, and the Internet.
What do you like most about Portland?
The creative industries in Portland thrive without being cutthroat. There is a collaborative atmosphere here that is unmatched in other places I’ve lived.
How can an artist use the Internet to further their career?
By using it to make connections. Be engaged on a one-to-one level with your fans and they will love you for it.
Who’s the most important person in your life?
My beautiful wife, Lissie.
