Mario Moving On

I have a huge announcement. After a long interview process I have made the very difficult decision to accept a new job in Atlanta, Georgia. This will open many new doors for me and is the sort of move I must make to improve my career and myself.

My new gig is at the number 1 TV station in Atlanta. I will be an image promotions producer with more resources than I have ever had at my disposal. It's one of the top stations in the country and I will be jumping from Market 40 to Market 8.

'Bittersweet' doesn't come close to describe the pros and cons of the situation as I know this means I must leave Las Vegas, my friends, love ones, colleagues, and surrogate theatre family that I have been so lucky to have in my life for the better part of a decade. 

I will miss you all. But will make an effort to be ever present on the internet and will visit from time to time. Thanks to those that have supported me through out the years and through one last really rough year. With out those friendships and support I wouldn't have the this opportunity to take. Thank you again a million times over.

My apologies in that the move is coming fast and in two and half weeks I will be heading on down to Georgia. TV and Film really are hurry up and wait.

There will be an amazing party on Sat. the 7th starting at 8 and going as late as possible so everyone can make it. MARK YOUR CALENDARS. As soon as we have a location someone will invite you all with a Facebook event. Plus, I will make my best effort to make time for those that can't make that date so the there will be no excuses.

I will be posting a few more sappy messages and have a few more sappy nights where everyone tries not to cry into their beers. Luckily we live in the age of technology and I have learned the world is a lot smaller than we think. In other words this won't be the last you'll hear of Mario Mendez.

Love you all.
