A silly video I made. Theory of Everything but with Stephen Hawking as an aspiring insult comic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUQ5JxyGHtU

Karol Marcowicz writes about playing in New York's underground poker scene: http://observer.com/2015/09/all-in-2/ 
Men have a preconceived notion about how women play—weakly—and I fed into it. I often wore my hair in two braided pigtails. Would someone this innocent lie to you about her hand?

Article by Martin Harris for +PokerNews about bettors/raisers who discuss their own range of hands. http://www.pokernews.com/strategy/straight-talk-when-players-tell-you-what-they-have-24164.htm 
Does a willingness to talk about one's own hand -- even to identify it exactly -- always represent strength? Considering "straight talk" at the tables.

Have you watched the 3-minute trailer for my new poker tells training video series?

If not, shame on you.

Employment
  • Via Regia Publishing
    Writer/Project Manager, present
    Over the last few years I've written and published two non-fiction, instructional books on poker. The first was Reading Poker Tells. The second was Verbal Poker Tells. These books have done very well, getting great reviews from both amateur and professional-level poker players. I've played and studied poker seriously, on and off, for more than ten years. For three of those years I played professionally. I've always thought that there were better books to be written about poker behavior than what was out there. Eventually I decided I'd try to write them myself.
  • Graphic Products
    Technical Writer, 2012 - 2013
    I was the only dedicated onsite technical writer. I researched and wrote the end-user guides and manuals for several of the company's proprietary hardware and software products. I also wrote promotional how-to guides on how to implement the company's solutions.
  • Convergence Training
    Instructional Designer, 2009 - 2012
    Convergence Training is a company that specializes in creating multimedia workforce training products (many of them using 3D animation) for industrial and manufacturing companies. During my time at Convergence, I researched and wrote training scripts for some large industrial companies. For example, some jobs required me to go to a facility and study their factory line and then create a training project to educate workers on how those machines and stations worked. I also created generic, off-the-shelf training on a myriad of complex subject matters, such as overhead crane operation, industrial pipe maintenance, and electrical dangers.

To the people complaining about coupons that the new owner doesn't honor: you realize you are complaining about a completely new business, don't you? The owner is a completely new owner and the previous owner's coupons have nothing to do with his business. Your ignorant complaints are akin to you acquiring coupons from a Taco Bell, having the Taco Bell shut down, having a McDonalds open in its place, and then complaining that the McDonalds doesn't take your coupons.

I didn't know I owed $30 to ATT and it went to Diversified Consultants to collect it. They say they sent me one letter; I never received it. I only found out about this because I got a credit check and saw the payment owed. Seems absurd that a bill-collecting company wouldn't try to contact you more than once before damaging your credit. (Plus it was only for $30.) I'm upset with them and with ATT (who I have used as a provider for years and which my wife and I still use, though we'll switch soon.)

I've used Car Forensics a few times; a couple times when I didn't want to drive the car due to being afraid of messing it up more. I appreciate the convenience of having someone come to me and make a diagnosis. I also appreciate getting to know my mechanic. The owner, Shelby, seems like a really genuine guy who is really interested in cars. He's taught me a lot about cars just from talking to him a few times about the car problems. He's been very fair to me in all the dealings I've had with him and has gone above and beyond what I expected. He seems like he's really trying to build a company with a great reputation that will stand the test of time. I recommend them.
