• What a year in Los Angeles has taught me…

    July 25, 2015 Jake DiMare

    Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day my wife and I arrived in Los Angeles to start our new lives as Californians. As seems to be the custom, in a city as transitory in the lives of many of her millions of residents, I believe this officially makes us ‘old-timers’. As such, I thought I would take…

  • Virgin Love for Customer Experience

    June 26, 2014 Jake DiMare

    It has taken me a couple of days to come down from the epic nerdgasm I experienced this past weekend, after using the new Virgin America website.
