Analyst, Researcher, Podcaster.
Founder of Thriller X Recordings LLC.
Thriller X Recordings LLC was created by me, Car Gonzalez it is an American creation label. Creating interesting alternative media & digital products in the current zeitgeist. I am based in Austin, Texas where I live with my wife and two boxer pups. Read more on why we started this journey here.
I currently work full time for a Managed Service Provider where I am a System Administrator for networks that are critical parts of businesses located in the Central Texas area. I am responsible for the day-to-day operation of these networks. Whether that is organizing, installing, and supporting an organization’s computer systems, servers, security, including local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), segments, intranets, and other data communication systems. I have certifications in Cisco and Microsoft.
I have been creating Thriller since early 2017, and it has grown far bigger than I ever anticipated. So having both jobs is a juggling act at times.
I occasionally agree to speaking engagements for both public and private events. Compensation will vary based on the nature of the client and event, as well as the topic. Ideal topics are in-line with the topics covered on Thriller Premium, although tailored topics can be discussed.
I am no longer doing any consulting at this time, as this would be a conflict of interest.
My goal is to be a truly independent industry analyst, researcher, podcaster a commitment that is about more than just having a self sustaining income.
I am not paid by any company, project, foundation or individual for any opinion I post on Thriller Premium or in any public forum, including podcasts and Twitter or any other social media accounts.
I am now only 100% Bitcoin as I have looked at everything else and realized we only get one shot at changing the world for humanity. I also do hold a 401k and IRA account that invest in a wide-ranging basket of stocks, over which I have no control.
I pay for all of my own travel and expenses when I attend industry conferences or events. Sometimes I receive a press pass but most times often than not I have to pay for the full conference pass price.
In addition, I have talked extensively about Bitcoin, industry and I rely solely on public information unless explicitly stated. In addition, as of 2019, I do not take consulting or speaking arrangements with companies, projects, foundations or individuals I cover (and I disclosed my activity when this was done.) Thriller Premium subscriptions are 99.1% majority of our income at Thriller X Recordings LLC; this is purposeful on my part as I want our incentives to be aligned with our listeners.
I take my personal integrity and the integrity of Thriller Premium and the Thriller X Recordings very seriously. While I will make (and have made) mistakes, I will always strive to correct them quickly and publicly, and take active steps to ensure I don’t make similar mistakes in the future. On the flip side, I do not take or have ever taken any ICO, STO, IEO, Bitcoin or any crypto currencies or utility tokens for coverage on past Thriller Podcast shows, through Thriller X Recordings, or on Thriller Premium shows. We also have a NO SHILL policy on our Thriller Premium shows and continue to roll disclaimers before any discussion of price is discussed.
If you have any concerns or questions about this ethics policy please do not hesitate to contact me.
