For approximately eight years, I financed my multi-threaded geek-powered, politico-comedy lifestyle by working as a strategy consultant to the communications and media industries. I worked for a small firm out of Boston called Altman Vilandrie & Company. While it wasn't the long term life for me, I've yet to work at a place with smarter people, and I have some great memories like going to Barcelona to learn about the convergence of landlines and mobile phones or to Washington D.C for a conference dedicated to hashing out bilateral international termination rates.
Yes. I know. It sounds too sexy to be true. Say it slowly to yourself. Imagine Barry White in the background. International. Termination. Rates.
