From Northern California originally, but moved to Los Angeles to work for William Morris, Irving Azoff, MTV, CAA and all the other big dogs (old men) in the music business (behind the scenes because I break car windows and make dogs bark when I try and sing). This was fantastic until I realized I was approaching 30 and no longer wanted to be a groupie in a rock band. So, I packed my things and relocated back to San Francisco where the freaks got weirder and my dating life nearly stopped because the guys were more interested in looking at each other than me which brought me back to Los Angeles. In LA, I had the opportunity to work in Marketing and Promotions with numerous high profile tours. After suffering a few personal hardships, I decided I wanted a change. This is when I started MelanysGuydlines.com. I found my voice and cathartic outlet writing this blog and have never looked back.
