Ending an era in the LVBP

This week, I wrote my final column for the Las Vegas Business Press. Here’s how it starts:

Its been an interesting seven years.

When I started writing a biweekly column for the Las Vegas Business Press in 2005, Las Vegas and the casino industry were in much different places. Models of Project CityCenter had just been unveiled; the first concrete pour on the foundations for what would become Aria were still in the future. Monthly revenue numbers, land prices and new condo projects on the Strip were increasing with a sense of inevitability. The bubble would never burst.

I’ve had a lot of fun writing for the Business Press. I’ve taken on some other projects that weren’t leaving me the time I wanted to produce quality work.

Of course, there’s no shortage of places to find my writing these days–just check Two Way Hard Three and Vegas Seven.
