I'm extremely excited to announce a new passionate BlackBerry enthusiast to our team. Give me a hand in welcoming Jubei Raziel to the CrackBerry blogs!!

Since Friday I've received over 40 emails from hopeful candidates in response to my call for new passionate blood on CrackBerry. I'm still reading through all of the applications and need to get back to a lot of people, but Jubei's application was one of the first to come through and the decision to bring him onboard was immediate.

Jubei is a passionate BlackBerry fan, tech enthusiast and console gamer who spends a lot of time in CrackBerry's forums. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times last year when CrackBerry took its HQ to NYC for two months. Also an accomplished photographer, filmmaker and novelist, Jubei actually showed up at our CrackBerry NYC Party and took awesome photos all night long. And if Jubei looks familiar to you, it could be because you've seen photos of him in GQ, Maxim, Cosmopolitan and DNR —his experience with photography and video began as a high fashion model. Basically, Jubei is the perfect weapon when it comes to tech blogging. :)

You won't have to wait long to see Jubei's articles start appearing on CrackBerry. In fact, he started today and hit the ground RUNNING. Living in Manhattan, Jubei attended today's BlackBerry Experience NYC event. Only his first day of duty and he already met BlackBerry CEO, John Chen, along with John Sims (head of enterprise), Marty Mallick (head of apps) and other senior execs on the BlackBerry team. You can't beat that! As I post this he's working on his first post following up on this morning's event.

Jubei Raziel

You won't find Jubei in the social sphere (which is kind of awesome), but for more on him you can check out his personal site at JubeiRaziel.com and of course talk to him here on the CrackBerry blogs and in the forums.

Welcome to the team, Jubei!

I just hope when he responses to people on here, it does not end in.

It's just a wee bit annoying.

I say, now Crackerberry should hire an equally attractive female to even things up. As well as a new photo with every article that's published by her.

Hey, if Kevin can share photos of him in his yoga shorts, I'm not asking for much :D

Welcome Jubei!

BlackBerry really needs to raise it's profile! I have the Z30, which is a great device; now we just need to convince everyone else!

I really appreciated BlackBerry's past promotions and marketing campaigns (I originally had the Torch 2). BlackBerry used to have some innovative marketing strategies so I hope this is a good sign of things to come!

You can see my modest efforts to revive BlackBerry; I have reviews of the Z30 on CrackBerry.com, as well as on various sites like Bell.ca, BestBuy.ca and TheSource.ca (I'm in Montréal, Canada).

Now I just hope the Z50 will become a reality....
