Leah Hovig

My name is Leah and I have a passion for the Japanese Otaku culture, Anime, video games, and Shiny Technology. I love traveling, meeting new people and going to conventions that range from Defcon to CES, Comic-con to Anime-con and more.

I was born in Melbourne, Australia raised in Silicon Valley and a graduate of The Art Institute of California – San Francisco, with a B.S. in Web Design & Interactive Media. I feel humbled every day I turned what I enjoy to do into a paying job at CBS.

Presented with Green Award for Best Green Marketing Campaign from Las Vegas Business Press and Certificate of Commendation from Senator Harry Reid for web portal, “Viva Green Vegas”.

Last but not least, if you have a product you would like me to review and write about don’t hesitate to ask.  I’m always thrilled to discover new tech and write about it.
