  • Paul Ulane

    Lead Editor, New York, NY
    Before landing at Mandatory.com, Paul honed his skills at a variety of web sites ranging from Maxim.com to SI.com. In that time, he's done everything from review DVDs to interview LeBron James. His current passions include YouTube and Twitter.
  • Gary Dudak

    Senior Editor, Santa Monica, CA
    Gary is a fan of rock and roll, Chicago sports teams (not named the Cubs), and love. He once tried to keep Willie Nelson's son from joining his father onstage for a song when he was inexplicably working as a security guard. Despite all of his shortcomings, he somehow manages to live on the beach in Southern California with a gorgeous woman who he is now lucky enough to call his wife.
  • Max Miller

    Senior Editor, Santa Monica, CA
    Max is a graduate of UC Berkeley and has an entertainment industry background. He has been writing professionally for a number of years and not-so- professionally for many, many years before that. He prides himself on being a pop culture junkie and brings that addiction with him to the team at Mandatory.
