I was stuck at home in bed with me and got more and more involved with the Internet. I used it to keep in contact with friends and to make sure I was up to date with everything that was going on in the world.
And although I like to relax and have fun, my passion is my work.

I prefer the new me a million times more over than the old one.

When I look back at the way that I was in that documentary I cringe.
At the end of the day I'm pleased with the site I created.
Initially, the site was favourably reviewed in a leading new media publication and the word spread.
