Max Bell
Max Bell is a writer/journalist based in L.A. He'd tell you where he went to college, but doesn't want you to unearth his terribly written screeds for the school paper. Consistently the youngest person in the room (or e-mail thread), he lives his life like Mitch from Dazed and Confused. His words have appeared online or in print for LA Weekly, Spin, Complex and XXL, among others. He hopes to go to grad school and write a novel, but is content to smoke weed with rappers in the meantime, the in-between time.
