A publication like Big RED & Shiny thrives on the motivation and dedication of our writers. Their energy and love of Boston keeps them coming back with great new articles, reviews and much more. They are the life blood of Big RED, who deserve more praise than I could ever give.
From time to time, as editors move move on to greener pastures, I am always impressed at the great people who step forward to assume the daunting task of running our little pink website. A year ago, when Sean Horton departed, it was Matthew Gamber who guided us through many great changes. This year, as Gamber departs for Savannah, it is writers Micah Malone and Rachel Gepner who have stepped up. They both bring their own unique and wonderful perspective to this project, and we are more than happy to have them.
Micah Malone has been with Big RED since the first issue. His voice and vision have been consistent throughout the life of the project. As an MFA graduate from the Museum School, he provides a unique and diverse perspective, and promises to take us into the future with an eye toward our (brief but rich) past.
Rachel Gepner comes to us from The Weekly Dig, and is relatively new to the Boston scene. Her energy and fresh perspective promise to bring new life to Big RED.
I am proud to welcome both Micah and Rachel as new Big RED editors. If history is any guide, they will both soon have cushy jobs and leave us all behind. Until they do, I know we are all looking forward to their great work as Big RED & Shiny editors.
