It’s that time of year again, and I’d love to know what you’re giving, and hoping to get, this holiday season. With all the gadgets out there, are you looking for accessories for what you have, or upgrades to something new? Are you excited about new game consoles and phones? How much tech do you buy for yourself and others for the holidays?

Now that I’m a college student, I see what other students bring to school, and more interestingly, what they do and don’t use. How much of your buying is just for fun and how much is with an eye toward usability? Do you give tech-related gift cards for the holidays? I look forward to hearing all about your tech buying and gift giving habits in the comments section.

You can watch my interviews from the 2013 International CES here. Stay tuned for my report from CES in January!

As a veteran interviewer, I greatly appreciate the time and effort others in the media put into their work – especially when I am the subject! Here are some upcoming and recent interviews/articles where I am answering the questions, rather than asking them.

I was a guest on Business Rockstars, hosted by Ken Rutkowski, on KFWB.

Mike Stern included me in his billboard Top 40 article called The Wisdom of Youth.

Radio Magazine features my Albuquerque studio online and in their January physical issue (including the cover).

I was on Actors E Chat, hosted by the incomparable Bretty Walkow.

Ed Ryan interviewed me for Radio Ink Magazine and then included me in 40 of Radio’s Rising Stars in their August 27, 2012 issue and as part of a panel of four Rising Stars of Radio at the Radio Show in Dallas in September.

Dr. Jerry L. and Sarah L. Cook included me in their book Raising CEO Kids. You can read the interview Sarah did with my mom here.

I offer a heartfelt thanks to all of these wonderful authors/hosts, for believing in me and sharing me with their audiences!
