Managing Editor, Canada (Kitchener, ON, Canada)
- One day back in 2006, I got drunk with a friend and we decided to start a music magazine. That one lasted a few years. For many reasons, I folded that magazine and immediately started ANOTHER music magazine. That one made it another 6 years. During these many years, I’d run into Chris Gonda a lot. He always said "We should work together." Now we are. We both want global media domination. Full stop.
