MetroSeeker.com is the innovative startup that is dedicated to unearthing the personality of cities.
Part of the way we do this is by interviewing local celebrities and discovering why they ended up in their city.
Our featured interviews include NY Times Best Selling Authors, actors, comedians, musicians, screenwriters and producers.
We have a great staff and among them are:
@TheRealYsmay - our CEO and original gypsy whose wandering foot has travelled across this great nation numerous times.
@CynthiaWenslow - our art director whose keen eye for quality photography and aesthetics helps ensure we put our best (wandering) foot forward.
@JoeMVarilla - our resident sloganeer who is responsible for marketing copy and ensuring we all have snazzy hats.
Interview with MetroSeeker.com
How will the world change in the next year?
People now have more power to interact with their city than ever before, and this continues to evolve.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@CarsonJDaly! We love his show because we feel he too is dedicated to uncovering the essence of things.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
The fantastic @DashiusClay. He's a great DJ and producer in Miami, and he is all about what we do here at MetroSeeker.
What's your best tweet?
Every tweet is great, but the one where we announced our interview with Madonna's guitarist @Monterrific was really exciting.
