What I read

Favorite Blogs: Apartment Therapy/The Kitchn and Content Marketing Institute's blog. I recently read (and highly recommend!) Jay Baer's Youtility and The Doodle Revolution. I'm also an avid reader of fiction.

Ideal team

I like working with people who don't take everything super seriously all the time. I am a hard worker and will dedicate myself to achieving the results you want--but I thrive when I can experiment and push the envelope even just a little.
