The Kinja Help team has seen some fine people come and go, and last week we added a great new member to the family.

Please help me to welcome Ariel as our new Support Associate! Ariel comes to us from Foursquare, where he helped test Swarm, curated tips, and enjoyed craft beer, among many other things.

Ariel is a fan of live indie rock, film, and cold-brew coffee. In his free time he maintains a blog about music and is writing a screenplay. According to his grandfather's family tree, he is a direct descendent of a famous pirate of the Caribbean, Roberto Cofresí. Keep up with Ariel on Twitter.

You'll hear a lot more from Ariel in the coming weeks (and hopefully years!) but don't think you've gotten rid of Steve and I just yet. The three of us will work in unison to make sure your issues are promptly addressed and your voice is heard.
