About the Puttylike Team

About Emilie & Puttylike | About the Puttylike Team

Greetings multipotentialites! Emilie here.

For about three years, I ran Puttylike entirely by myself. But as the site grew, I began to feel that the community would benefit from some new voices, perspectives, and input.

Keen to push Puttylike forward, I gradually started bringing other smart, creative, and curious multipotentialites on board.

Over time, the team here at Puttylike has grown and I couldn’t be more proud to say that I now work alongside one of the most interesting and passionate groups of people around.

Allow me to introduce you to the Puttyteam!

Neil Hughes: Staff Writer & Puttytribe Moderator

Along with writing more books, he puts his time into standup comedy, computer programming, public speaking and other things from music to video games to languages. He struggles to answer the question “so, what do you do?” and is worried that the honest answer is probably “procrastinate.” He would like it if you found him at www.walkingoncustard.com and on Twitter as @enhughesiasm.
