an encore of my very own.

In uniform, on break, waiting to get back to my dice game and bust out my stunning press moves.

I don’t know if the new blog header warrants an explanation, but I’m going to offer one anyway. As most of you know, I lived in Vegas barely longer than an extended vacation, about 4-1/2 months (Nov 09 – Mar 10). I worked for Wynn Resorts at both its properties, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas. They are, without question, the gold standard when it comes to high-end resorts.

I’m proud to say I worked for the best casinos and one of the most famous bosses in the world. Who doesn’t know Steve Wynn?

Sure, I was a frontline employee, a dice dealer, but I loved going to work everyday I was there. Too bad I was something of a casualty of the economy. But closing that very brief chapter of my life opened a brand new one, back in my adopted hometown of Indianapolis.

You might say it’s a bit of an encore after a two-year journey in the gaming industry, culminating in my Las Vegas Odyssey at the Wynn. I look back on that period with pride, but a slight bit of sadness. It was good while it lasted.

But I’m in a new chapter, new groove and have a greater appreciation for what some might consider a conventional life. It’s those conventions that will allow me to live life to its fullest.

And here, we, go.
