Industries I love
What I read
I subscribe to the New Yorker, Wired and Fast Company, and I read a few food and lifestyles magazines. In blogs, I read Hyperbole and a Half, Social Media Examiner and Matt Cutts of Google, among others. I like suspense novels and classics.
I do the initial reads for my friend's plays and provide feedback throughout his writing/editing process. I also help him with rehearsals and do some stage managing, social media marketing and photography. I also help other friends with their resumes.
I prefer small teams, and as an introvert, I do my best creative work on my own, but I like to have specific instructions from the client and some good communication to get the lay of the land. I work best with written communication, which is my forte.
