GEV MAGAZINE’S FASHION & TECH ISSUE 21.0

By Kaye Cloutman There are approximately 7.2 billion people in the planet, and we’re all related or interconnected one way or another, even without the internet. At times I can’t help but wonder how life would be for everyone without it, but then perhaps the internet is merely an amplifier of all the existing connections we have as humans. This topic seems to be the one thing pounding hardest in my head at the moment. It’s impossible to expect I’d ever meet more than a tiny fraction of the world’s population but one can always dream. In this issue we are privileged to celebrate Orkut Buyukkokten who has in essence made it possible for many...

GEV Magazine’s Gift Guide Issue 18.0

By Kaye Cloutman What is the true concept of celebrity? At GEV, we are constantly besieged with pitches from PR firms about their celebrity clients. While this is flattering, we also feel we have a huge responsibility to the community regarding who we feature. Fame is great but when the question arises “what has this person done for the community?” more often than not you can hear a pin drop while waiting for the answer. Therefore, it is a true honor that we are not only graced by one but five individuals in the Bay Area who I consider Santa’s true helpers all year round. These people, despite their media stature, are truly grounded...

Ready for dessert?

Many moons ago, I met Amy Reiley at The Napa Truffle Festival dinner in La Toque. I didn’t know that she’s an author of such captivating and tempting cookbooks… and OH THE TRUFFLES that night at the dinner! It was so sexquisite! Truffles are usually associated with sexual attraction, and they elicit an immediate response from me. After reading her cookbooks, it was clear that she was an amorous Goddess of sensual, romantic gastronomy. Amy’s E-book is called “Eat Cake Naked: aphrodisiac desserts to heat up your love life”. Have I got your attention yet? This is serious stuff for those of you who might be looking for a little culinary and...

My career has recently experienced a transformation. Although beautiful and idyllic to some as it may seem, I found myself being pulled in many directions often leaving a gaping hole of insecurity in the place where my...
