Clyatt.net will always be a work in progress!
MAJOR changes are on the way ASAP ... all from the Clyatt.net Studios ... OK it's really an overgrown shed, but great things start small! STAY TUNED!
For me 'Home Means Nevada' as I head into my third year in Las Vegas ... seems like three months ...
Pre 'Sin City' I had two mantras; on good days it was 'NM' - Not Miserable - on bad days, 'My Soul Is On Fire' 🔥
For the last two years it has been an amazing change, most days, I'm not only 'not miserable', but happy 😊 ... what a concept!
While it may still smolder, my soul is no longer on fire.
Until Las Vegas, since I started in the media in 1975 at 16, I was largely hiding in plain sight on radio 📻 and TV 📺..
Too afraid to live the kind of life that has given me the happiness I have now.
My skills allowed me to hide, but hiding only fanned the flames of my soul.
Here in Las Vegas ... I've explored life the way many do years earlier.
Doing everything from; loading trucks, to being a craps dealer, an ice skating guard on The Strip, becoming politically active and more.
I worked on TV in so many places, even on air worldwide 🌍 on CNN ... where the news is NOT fake ... but never really knew most of those communities anywhere close to way that I know Las Vegas.
Hey it is Vegas ... so more than most places, who can tell what tomorrow will hold, but at last I feel like I am home and my passion for Southern Nevada and the excitement of being here continues to be just as intense as when I stepped off my $36 flight from Philadelphia.
I've now reached a point where I may have had enough of 'real life', even though I gained so much from the jobs I've held ... or in the case of working for FedEx for all of the weight I lost ... all experiences that I wish I had much earlier, but now because of them and what I have learned about Las Vegas, I could do an even better job back in the world of media.
I may have temporarily left the media in the USA, but not in Australia 🇦🇺. Even during my life exploration here in Nevada I have continued my work providing USA news and commentary to radio stations in Australia, a position I have held continuously since 2002 ... the 'butterfly effect' in full effect, a job I got thanks to a sports sex scandal.

Hard to believe when I was a kid I used to have my own Cessna 172 ... now I'm such a homebody, I'm only looking for media or political opportunities in Las Vegas ... and maybe Southern California.
