My night at the circus… Amaluna’s Cirque du Soleil


What a way to close 2014! I scored tickets to Cirque du Soleil ‘s latest show, Amaluna. My girlfriend, Margarita, and I simply love a good show, and when you combine a concert (think cutting-edge mix of rock and techno), a stunning fashion show, a spectacular light show, and acrobatic flash, you experience a show that you’ll never forget. Amaluna, or “Mother Moon,” now playing until Jan. 25, 2015 under a tent at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, is the opposite of most Cirque productions because it’s cast is 70 percent female. Written and directed by Tony Award-winning director, Diane …

When I was invited to attend Logo TV’s 2014 NewNowNext Awards at South Beach’s Surfcomber Hotel, I jumped at the opportunity.

A very powerful Gratitude Practice


“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” – Meister Eckhart It is that time of the year again, a time when we reflect and give thanks! This has been a roller-coaster year for me, but I’m feeling so grateful for the many experiences and opportunities of growth that I’ve lived on this 2014.
