After waiting in line for nearly two hours before finally getting denied access to a Las Vegas nightclub during his final college Spring Break hurrah, Marcos Colon vowed it would never happen again. He quickly put his journalism degree to work by becoming the youngest editor in history, covering one of the top markets in the nation — Miami. Needless to say, he won't step foot in a club now unless he's on the NFU list. Years and countless hangovers later, he's familiar with top nightlife establishments all over the country. While he still has a foot in the nightlife industry as a freelance writer, he's currently a tech journalist and the online editor of SC Magazine, a heralded B2B magazine that focuses on the information security industry.
