PHOENIX--()--Sleepover Rover, Inc., the company that founded the in-home dog-boarding business in 2004, just enlisted premier journalist and dog lover Blair Tindall to lead the company’s social media and public relations.
When Blair became a pet host for Sleepover Rover, Co-Founders Tina Myers and Maggie Brown found Blair’s hilarious email communications and phone calls creative, with the endearing humor not unlike George Takei, the beloved Erma Bombeck, or Bill Cosby and identified her as a huge talent that they wanted as the “voice” for Sleepover Rover.
Blair taught journalism at Stanford University, at Berkeley, and at Mills College, and her shocking expose of the music world, Mozart in the Jungle, has sold over 3 million copies. Blair was also a staff business reporter at the Examiner (Hearst) and critic-at-large for the Contra Costa Times in Walnut Creek. She went on to write for The New York Times, Agence France-Presse, the Los Angeles Times, Sierra, The Sydney Morning Herald, and the International Herald Tribune.
Blair spent 23 years as a professional musician with the New York Philharmonic, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. She presented a critically acclaimed solo debut at Carnegie Recital Hall. Blair has performed on many film soundtracks including Malcolm X, Crooklyn, and Twilight. She has also performed with Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts at the Blue Note Jazz Club.
Blair’s passion for music and writing is clearly rivaled by her love for dogs and the people who cherish them. Follow “Host Blair” on Sleepover Rover social channels, Twitter and Facebook.
