Electronic Hollywood small soiree

Just Northeast of this event was a small soiree at Electronic Hollywood's offices. Co-Founder's Jamie Levy, Jordan Serlin, and Scott Alexander had cause to celebrate as Web TV's Steve Perlman joined them in forming a production company. Munching on a delicious spread of smoked salmon on pumpernickel, I met David Wyly, president of Pareto Financial Services, Inc. ( His company helps people raise capital and "makes sure the investment is a win-win situation." Nearby were David Blumenstein ( and Lara Stein (, huddled around a computer. Lara looked quite spring-y in an all ivory suit and sandals and her little pup Jasper ran circles around her. Also at the small reception were Matt Toner (, Dan Sweeney (, Oliver Harris (, who were all excited about the prospect of EH's new prospects. I spied my friends Bonnie Halper (, Lori Schwab (, and Howard Greenstein ( and Cherry Arnold (who's now at Barnes & Noble) and Scott Heiferman (I-traffic) came out for the celebration as well. Jordan Serlin and I exchanged stories of summers in Lake George, he as a water-skiing instructor and me as an actress in summer stock. We played with the WebTV and got a tip from Sarah Lefton to sign up for the Yes! After all this hard work and networking, its time to get out and exercise a bit!
