Don't mess with tech. 

Last week, I headed to Austin for SXSW Interactive. To kick off a great week of film, music and tech innovations, I hosted an exclusive dinner with Aloft Hotels, inviting leading creators, editors, bloggers and brand reps in the tech space.

The night started with cocktails at W Austin followed by an unforgettable meal at Uchiko, followed by live music courtesy of Nate Botsford.

No dinner party of mine would be complete without a karaoke bus to drive my friends home, so we trekked around Austin in the R-VIP Lounge. 

The following day, I joined Mark Schaefer, Ari Lightman, Brian Fanzo, Jackie Huba, Bryan Kramer, Ed Bailey, Eric Silverstein and Nakia for Dell’s #Social360 UnConference, where I shared best practices at the intersection of social media and business. 

After the UnConference, I had the opportunity to explore some of brand activations taking place. Jessica Naziri and I stopped by the Gatorade Fuel Lab for a virtual reality check.

I then enrolled in the School of Self Expression with Refinery 29 and Neiman Marcus in the Dream Closet, and did my best Rami Malek with USA and Mr. Robot
