What once would have been TONS of stuff has now been scanned and in two Drobo NAS storage units with a 20TB capacity ... I want to remember it, so scanning works great. There are a very few of the physical items that I'm holding on to and others that have had great value to me for many years and now may have some value to you ... so they are up for sale!
My ebay experience has been as good as I could have hoped for, not much left in the 'store', but there may still be a few unique items for you to check out, click the box below.
I'm now kind of the anti-hoarder, to see how little stuff I can have without having a significant negative impact on my life ... wish there was a market for used dress shirts ;-) ... I have about 10 white shirts alone.
Now will I need those dress shirts again for work? Can't wait to see what comes next! Here is part of the story of how I have at last ended up where I have wanted to be for 30 years, in Las Vegas;
Las Vegas, my home since August 2015 and the start of Life v2.0
I’m continuing my Australian radio work, I’ve been a freelance reporter for 3AW Melbourne and other top Australian stations since March 2002, but I’m also looking for other primarily part-time opportunities, but with the right fit perhaps full-time?
I have spent most my career ‘on-air’, but since coming to Las Vegas I’ve enjoyed transferring those skills to other endeavors; I’ve helped run a children’s amusement business, website design, computer sales at Best Buy, worked for a better Nevada as a Bernie Sanders State Delegate and candidate for 2016 Nevada National Delegate, 2018 NV State Delegate, canvassing for Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), logistics - working for FedEx Ground and Amazon, for the 2016 season helped to run The Ice Rink at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, worked as a casino dealer (primarily craps), hold current NV Gaming Registration and for the just 2017/18 season worked for the new Winter’s Village Ice Rink at Green Valley Ranch Casino/Resort.
HOW I CAN HELP YOU?
Las Vegas is the place I have always wanted to be and my intensity for it only grows the longer I stay.
Unlike someone who you could bring in who is new to town, I know Las Vegas; I have worked in it, met the people, met the politicians and judges and yes know the weather.
My years in the media give me the ability to handle all types of people in all types of circumstances and I have the abilities to give your customers/clients/guests the experience, excitement and maybe even the fun they are looking for.
Hope we have the chance to meet soon? (Phone Number & Email on Bio demo should be 702-929-7777 – email@example.com - Thanks!)
