What I read

I read everything that I can. Various blogs, including DJ Booth, The Smoking Section, Complex, The STASHED, and countless others. I read books and comic books when away from the computer.

I work best in a small team full of individuals who are motivating and creative. I'm not sure I have a preference on management styles, but I just want to be able to write exceptional content with flexibility.
