What I read

Novels are always high on the list. I also like a variety of blogs and sites: McSweeney's Internet Tendency, New Yorker, New York Times, miscellaneous links found through Twitter

Side projects

I love Instagram and started an account for my neighborhood (@eastlakeseattle). And I've been working on a concept for a board game, although that's sort of been put on the back burner. And I occasionally enter the New Yorker's cartoon caption contest.

Ideal team

I especially enjoy smaller, collaborative creative teams with a casual and friendly work and management style.
