Thanks to November

Hey, Everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving Holiday with your close friends and family. This will be my final FiOS campaign post. With that being said I had an amazing opportunity to learn about Fiber optics and the advantages.

What I’ve learned from FiOS is that it’s a completely different connection from Satellites or cable. Sometimes we fear the change of trying something new. When it comes to FiOS service think of it as an upgrade for yourself and your families lifestyle. One feature I love is Mobile TV. it’s available for all your Mobile devices. Sometimes kids and adults need some TV time, whether that’s with the family or alone you can get a really great service with our strong 100/100 Mbps. When you’re “Home” using the FiOS Mobile app you’ll have access to all your channels just like on your TV set.

Since the switch I cannot seem to stop bragging about the internet speed, I can easily upload gigs of video without any hesitation, to having the clearest online conversations with my peers.

My Recent Experience 

Hey All!

I wanted to tell everyone about a recent experience with a new client and how Verizon’s service played a huge role. Since I’m considered a creative in the business world, for my creative juices to start flowing I needed to be actively outside to find inspiration.

20161016_141246.jpg

Let’s face it, when we usually pitch for a client or to investors it’s usually behind closed doors. With America’s Best Network, I’m confident enough to take my business outdoors. We streamed a few videos and downloaded content using my Edge 7 Hotspot to my iPad. The average speeds of DL were 48 Mbps and UL of 22mbps.

Before having our meeting, we had a quick picnic in Central Park. Witnessing Foliage is something that words can’t explain. My Edge 7 made sure to capture the moment, even with low lighting the phone knew exactly how to adapt accordingly.

My meeting lasted a good hour and a half because of the beautiful views, and the great knowledge we were sharing with one another. I explained to her the benefits of NFC. Something many people don’t take advantage of yet.

The Edge 7’s NFC ( Near Field Communication) chip came in handy when I left my credit card at home. All I had to do was press a button and bam! My account got charged like any other transaction. This may sound dangerous to some but it provides a safer environment than your physical wallet. Customers can check out at a store, purchase and load concert tickets to their smartphones, board the subway, read information from a smart poster, and many other tasks all from a single device.

Wishing everyone a great and safe Halloween!!

I have to say the selections of shows this season is phenomenal! We have so many options to choose from. Family, Drama to Comedy are among of the few genres of T.V. series this season. Those who personally know me, know that I’m a huge fan of Shark Tank, it’s super addicting if you’re into business or marketing. What’s your favorite T.V. series you are currently watching?

September Chills

 

Hey Everyone

I hope you all enjoyed your summer vacations. For some reason, it felt like June was just last month. Since it’s already Mid-September you know that means series premiers! I have a hunch that this year there will be more a lot more interesting shows than there was last year. I know many of you are relieved that your kids are off to school too. Believe me, I have a nephew who’s only 6!

Screenshot 2016-09-14 14.32.40.png

Make sure your FiOS DVR boxes have enough space for the new shows premiering. One of the many shows that I’m intrigued to watch is Lethal Weapon, The Exorcist, and Marvel’s Luke Cage. Each of a different genre. I’m attracted to the old school brand with a new twist to it. Another show I’m watching today  Wednesday the 14th is the new season of American Horror Story! Did I also mention I was watching the new season of The Profit. A business reality-show that can benefit anyone who’s interested in marketing and branding. Marcus Lamonis goes around the U.S saving companies and jobs for the everyday people. Which shows are you going to watch this season?

Having 100mbps DL /100mbps UP sounds nice right? The meaning of download is how fast we retrieve data from the internet, while upload means how our devices are allowed to upload data. So why do we settle for speeds of 100/20 – 50/10? Broadband speeds are measured in “megabits per second” Bits are tiny units of data, with a megabit representing a million of them. With FiOS Triple Play for only $69.99, this includes the 100/100 internet, custom TV + Phone service. Look at it as a small investment for you and your close ones.

On Thursday, September 15  we will have our monthly FiOS chat on twitter.  We Will discuss Fall TV shows along with a chance to win cool prizes at the end of every chat. DON’T FORGET TO RSVP! Hope to see you there!

Assignment – Review of the Javitz Facility

On Saturday, September 5, I had the opportunity to attend my first Star Trek convention. Celebrating 50 years of Star Trek! What better way for me to learn about the Star Trek than a Bicentennial celebration. I got to witness and learn how Star Trek has Influenced technology.

Real Life Cloaking Technology

I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t know much of Star Trek. But after attending panel after panel and conversing with fans it started to grow on me. The Smithsonian Channel along with FiOS sent me there to cover #BuildingStarTrek a new Documentary that explains the culture of Star Trek and influences it has made in the past 50 years. Also in the documentary, you can see how the Enterprise was taken apart so that it can be restored and displayed at the national Air and Space Museum in DC. The original set has been showcased at The EMP. But you’ll just have to watch the Documentary and see how it all got developed.

From 3D printers to signed memorabilia, Star Trek 50 had it all! I had a great conversation with a NASA scientist about the upcoming Mars expedition. He estimates within the next 10-15 years we will have Men/Women in Mars. I even asked him I was “Astronaut” material. Unfortunately, he said I wasn’t physically fit enough ha! I could have told you that. But they do have open availabilities for future astronauts every 2 years.

Q (John de Lancie) explaining how he got started with Star Trek

I have to admit that Trekkies are one of the most nicest people you’ll ever meet. They actually took their time to explain more in depth about each movie or tv series I asked, and they didn’t seem to mind.

The biggest highlight of my day was Leonard Nimoy’s tribute.  The tribute organizers had access to his personal photos never before seen by the public. I learned Leonard was an avid photographer and a family man with a heart unlike anyone else’s. I admit at the end of the tribute, I cried like a baby. Seeing how much he struggled as a young actor before Star Trek, to even being a cab driver where John F. Kennedy was one of his fares. Kennedy told Nimoy “Just keep in mind, there’s always room for one more good one!”

I wanted to give a special shoutout to the OM Media Group, The Smithsonian Channel, Verizon FiOS, Kelli Fitzpatrick, and The ladies from Rock Love Jewelry. I had an awesome time now that I became a Trekkie I can’t wait until next years convention. Cosplay for next year?

Summer #Staycations

 

For many, staycations are an option. But at times, staycations are a mandatory part of your work life. At first sure it was hard, but if you love or have a passion for something then nothing can stop you!

Working in the Garment District in NYC has its perks depending on what you do. But for myself, I take on two jobs. One, as an assistant/partner to an elite pattern maker and the other working in production (quality check). Don’t get me wrong I love my jobs, but one of the minor setbacks is not having the availability to fly out. On my free time, I love to photograph just about anything the concrete jungle has to offer and convert that to art through my lens.

20160813_174938-2
Verizon helps me with ALL my staycations. Here’s how,
I love to do overnight trips (close to the city limits) if not picnicking in Central Park or Inwood, among my favorite parks to be in. My Samsung Edge 7 along with the mobile hotspot are an amazing collaboration. Service and speed are what I love.

File Aug 18, 9 20 14 PM
For those overnight trips, my handy backup battery has enough juice for 2 days. Recently I went on an overnight camping trip near Woodstock, NY. I didn’t have to worry about reception. My camping partner and I were both connected some 10 miles away from the nearest town with full reception. Also, the GPS feature became very helpful as we hiked. We streamed music and roasted marshmallows watching the sun hide away in the mountains peak. When I do stay home, I love to stream music and edit my photography through my cloud storage.

Thank you Verizon for always keeping me connected and up to-date!
