At Massively, Bree spends her hours slavishly copyediting features, dueling with PR, co-hosting the podcast, and tinkering in the darkest dungeons of the site code. Formerly responsible for One Shots, she currently pens Ask Massively, the Week in Review, Not So Massively, Betawatch, and The Think Tank and contributes to The Daily Grind.
