Well, if you have a way to get here, I'd say go for it, right? How old are you? Do you have a family? If you have family at home, are you prepared to have to make such a long journey home to see them when you want to? Those are certainly things to factor into such a big decision.
NYC is definitely the way to go, if only for the amount of work available. The hard part is going to be making connections. I might look into working with a talent agent of some sort to help get you placement, or a foot in the door, if you're serious.
Making connections is the tough part, you're right, Dave. And thanks for the advice with talent agents - I didn't think of it. Maybe you know some particular agents whom I can apply to?
As for the family, I'm single and will miss my parents of course, but the dicision is already taken. And now I just need to go it as smooth as possible. The only big trouble might be finding an employer who would like to hire me and make a work permit. All the other problems are just technicalities.
Hey Esem, freelance is a good way to go, you're right. But you can get a work permit as a freelancer, I guess.
