My name is Gabriel Sands and I’m a Senior Marketing Manager @ Refinery29.

My work specializes in: Partnerships.

I have a passion for: Food, travel, design.

I use Flipboard because: It’s the most beautiful way to consume my favorite media.

The first few sites I read in the morning are: The New York Times, The Guardian, The Cut…and R29, of course.

The purpose of my work is to: Grow and develop the R29 audience.

What makes my work different is: The incredible people I work with every day.

The best article I read all week was: A Times feature on toxic soil in Indiana and its parallels to the Flint water crisis.

My favorite topic on Flipboard is: Food & Dining, Travel, Style

Someone I admire from a different discipline is: anyone on our creative team because: I admire incredible brains that work differently than my own.

My “media diet” includes: Besides Flipboard, of course: lots of NPR (and Q2, their incredible contemporary classical music station), print issues of Harpers (not Bazaar), the Vogue podcast, and a ton of documentary film.

A unique productivity tip of mine is: Take a 10-15 minute walk every day.

One issue that needs more attention is: Actually furnishing my new apartment.

If I could offer one piece of advice to my younger self, it would be: Don’t worry so much. Things have a way of working out splendidly.
