We're extremely happy to have Ariel Bitran working with us as our new, full-time editorial assistant. In that role, he will join me as a Forum Administrator.
In the past, Ariel has also worked with us as a summer intern, working to create our annual Buyer's Guide. He distinguished himself as a hardworking, caring, and thoughtful member of our team, forming a strong bond with the magazine in a relatively short amount of time. He is also an outstanding guitarist for a local rock band, Heroes of the Open End, and a very active member of the NYC music scene.
Ariel Bitran can be reached through the forum, or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
