Side projects

In addition to maintaining my personal music blog, Music Is My King Size Bed (http://www.musicismykingsizebed.com) I was recently asked to be a contributor on Jon Ali's Blog (http://jonalisblog.com) which will soon be re-launching with a new design.

Ideal team

While I consider myself to be a self-starter, I thrive in a collaborative and open office environment, where I can bounce ideas off other passionate digital marketers. I prefer being part of a team, but I'm capable of hunkering down & doing my own thing.
