This series of posts was inspired by Lifehacker’s How I Work series, which I’ve been reading for quite some time and thoroughly enjoy. It’s about time we discover how our colleagues work and get to know them a little better.
If you want to participate in this fun series, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you the Word template where you can fill in your answers and your bio (incl. your site/blog/social media links) and then send it back to us as an attachment along with your photo (optional but preferred). If you don’t like any of the questions, just delete them and add your own. You can read the previous interviews here.

Music has always been a priority for George Myzalis. As a listener, musician, musicologist, critic, songwriter, radio producer. Of all the above he considers most important the attribute of the listener. His ‘torture’ started when he was very young when he went through all the stages of music education: conservatory, music school, music university, Masters in Music and now he is working hard and is getting worked up (and vice versa) for a PhD in Music. Since 1998 he has been writing articles on music and only on music (with a few exceptions) on the Internet, but also in magazines and newspapers. When he doesn’t write about music, he runs long distances listening to music. It’s not clear yet if he runs so that he can listen to music or that he listens to music so that he can run. Check out his blog and connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.
