Apple Music is a complete disaster. Moments before my flight on Sunday it deleted my entire library on my iPhone. Now it won't let me add my own music from iTunes. The sole purpose of iTunes is to sync music. I love Apple but they're trying my patience.

Having spent the last week touring many of McKim, Mead & White's creations, these photos still make me sad for what we've lost. I am all for progress but it should not be at the expense of our history. Could you imagine the +City of New York without +Grand Central Terminal​? It was almost torn down too.

"It's not the case that we couldn't afford to drop hundreds of billions on new passenger rail infrastructure over the next two or three decades. That's about what the United States spent invading Iraq, and a high-speed rail network would be more useful than that."
How is it that a rich and powerful country that was a pioneer in railroad adoption in the 19th century has such terrible trains?

It's an odd feeling to be an ocean away today as the City of New York remembers the events of September 11, 2001. After so many years, I still remember watching the news unfold from my apartment in Queens. Never forget.

Tell me again how +Barack Obama is "Officially The Worst President In American History"? 

✓ Saved the Country from a Depression
✓ Saved the Auto Industry
✓ Eliminated Osama Bin Laden
✓ Passed Affordable Care Act
✓ Repealed "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell"
✓ Passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
✓ Brokered Historic Accord To Significantly Limit Iran's Nuclear Ability
The agreement will lift international oil and financial sanctions, in return for limits on Iran’s nuclear production capability and fuel stockpile over the next 15 years.

While we're making progress removing the Confederate flag from public spaces and retail stores across the nation, let's work on changing other offensive things.

While I enjoyed the Tony Awards last night (and very happy for all my friends on winning productions), I'm far more excited about Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference that's about to start. 
The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015 takes places June 8-12 in San Francisco with an in-depth look at the latest in iOS and OS X.

Story
Tagline
Creative digital strategist and storyteller with a passion for technology, the arts, and food.
Introduction
Over the last 25 years, I’ve been helping people tell their story. I began backstage working with actors, directors, dancers, choreographers, and playwrights. For 15 years I hung lights, built sets, and ran shows all in an effort to support and facilitate the performance on stage for the audience in the house. Across the disciplines of theatre, ballet, opera, and Tony Award-winning Broadway shows, I’ve worn many hats and worked on countless of productions. 

A decade ago, during my graduate school studies, I transitioned from backstage production to live entertainment marketing, specifically digital and social. While my focus has shifted, my goal remains the same; to help theatrical producers share their story with an audience. And as traditional advertising models are shifting, and the marketplace is becoming more crowded, story and narrative is essential to connect with the consumer, where quality is valued far more than quantity. 

My diverse background allows me to bring a unique perspective to digital marketing consultancy, strategy, and management. I enjoy the challenge of providing a wide range of clients with a mix of creativity—both artistic and strategic—and business acumen. Clients describe me as a highly motivated professional who delivers practical marketing solutions while using cutting-edge technologies to achieve production and performance goals. Colleagues consider me to be driven and passionate about the constantly evolving fields of digital and social marketing.

As a frequent patron of Lincoln Center to attend New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, or many of the other world class events, Lincoln Ristorante is the perfect way to start the evening. Executive Chef Jonathan Benno, who was chef de cuisine at Thomas Keller's Per Se for six years, has developed a wonderful menu of contemporary Italian cuisine and an exquisite dining experience. The wait staff, skillfully commanded by Justin Marquez, are incredibly knowledge about every dish and the perfect wine to pair with the meal. In the few short years Lincoln Ristorante has been open it's already received a Michelin Star and praise from the New York Times. It's not an inexpensive meal, but for New York City the cost is worth the quality.
