When social media bites you on the ass.
I am generally a calm person. I mean, don’t you dare check with my wife about that. But I will concede to a distinct lack of calm whenever I have to call customer support. I’m not proud of going all Joe Pesci from Goodfellas on these poor anonymous souls doing their crappy jobs for AT&T, BofA and 1800FLOWERS.

Comcast and all the other horrible cable companies want to buy off politicians rather than make you happy. That’s why they love net neutrality.

There are three Bitcoin events in Vegas next week, back to back to back: Inside Bitcoins Las Vegas, the new CoinAgenda/BitAngels conference and Hashers United!
As the virtual currency continues to gain steam, many local enthusiasts are hopeful that Nevada will become the center of bitcoin’s universe. It just might make perfect sense.

Basic Information
Making other people famous.
For the last eight-plus years, I have worked in public relations and marketing for a wide variety of clients, from high-end nightclubs on the Las Vegas Strip and award-winning consumer technology startups to internationally based digital currency endeavors. I've achieved placements with some of the world's best known outlets, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Playboy Magazine, the TODAY Show, CNN, Fox News and many others. Advertising equivalency for some clients over the course of the campaigns was charted in the millions and tens of millions of dollars.

Prior to public relations, I was a multiple award-winning journalist and editor with 25 years of experience, during which I was named the best entertainment writer in the state of Nevada. As a journalist, I co-founded David Magazine, have been editor-in-chief of What’s On Las Vegas and What’s On Atlantic City, associate editor of the Las Vegas Weekly, and special sections editor of the San Francisco Examiner, among other positions.

I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in film and video production from the Emily Carr College of Art & Design, one of Canada’s top fine-arts schools.
