Myles Tanzer (Editor-In-Chief) studies Politics and Journalism. He has worked for Runnin’ Scared at The Village Voice and The Awl. Kanye West made him fall in love with hip-hop and Anthony Bourdain made him fall in love with good food. He also has a tumblr.
Zoë Schlanger (Editor-In-Chief) studies a holistically internet-inclined bundle of journalism, politics, environmental policy and urbanism in Gallatin. She’s written for The Nation, Gothamist, Talking Points Memo and this Spanish newspaper called El País. She tweets and tumbles and puts sriracha on everything. Her google reader feed will eat your google reader feed.
Julia Berke (Photo Editor) likes photos. A lot. She also likes Tumblr, sometimes Twitter and Portra 120 NC . She hails from Long Island, is a Photoshop wizard, takes her coffee dark and sweet, and dreams of her Special Agent every night. She will take your picture and probably say something snarky while doing so. She does things at NYU, like Gallatin for the Intersection of Visual and Verbal Storytelling. Her bao of choice is the Birdhaus.
Leah Clancy (On Campus Editor) was born and raised in Buffalo NY, the home of the Chicken Wing. She now lives in Crown Heights in BK, home of a lot of jerk chicken. She’s a senior with an English and American Literature major, and Creative Writing and Media, Culture and Communication minors. She hopes to be highly regarded someday. But for what— she’s not quite sure. You can follow her on Twitter and Tumblr. But not Facebook. That’s too intimate.
Ken Greller (City Editor) is a junior in Dramatic Writing at Tisch. He was born in New Jersey, raised in Baltimore and lives “On The Lower East Side.” When he’s not concerned with the internet, Ken is a playwright whose work has been seen by at least 25 people nationwide. His interests include bagels, Cody Horn’s performance in Magic Mike and thinking about season two of Smash. You should follow him on twitter.
Ari Lipsitz (National Editor) likes writing about politics and music. He coughs up an essay occasionally and can be found tweeting too much. He’s in Berlin for the semester, but he colonized gchat around 2010 and is immune to most antibiotics so say hi.
Sophie Kleeman (On Campus Editor) studies Journalism, Anthropology, and Creative Writing, which she hopes will one day lead to a job. She was born in Australia and raised in New York, though she’ll still throw another shrimp on the barbie if you ask her to. She is a ginger and a proud Red Sox fan, and her interests include food, beards, and whiskey. You can follow her on Twitter here.
Jocelyn Silver (On Campus Editor) goes to Gallatin, where she prepares for her future unemployment. She was born in Detroit and raised in San Diego, and while she is not blonde or able to surf, she has swum with the dolphins at Sea World and can pop a cap in somebody’s ass. She has written for places like The Village Voice and Hyperallergic. Her bat mitzvah was Moulin Rouge-themed. Her twitter situation is not great.
Zach Sokol (Entertainment Editor) is a twin by birth, writer and music listener by trade. He lives in the East Village, and interns more than he takes classes. When he is in school, he studies the intersection of New Media and Music Business in Gallatin. He loves domesticated animals, food, again music, and would describe himself as hyper-curious and talkative. He has a Twitter and interviews journalists he admires in a series called MetaMag.
John Surico (National Editor) studies Journalism and Politics in CAS. He’s a Long Island transplant to Brooklyn and somehow only pronounces ‘coffee’ wrong. He writes about politics and culture for the Village Voice and GQ. Once in a while, he’ll go through long bouts of listening to the Jackson Five. He tweets; he tumbles; he’ll endorse you on LinkedIn if you’re into that sort of thing. And that’s about it.
Jeremy Unger (National Editor) studies Journalism, Politics, and Computer Science in CAS. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, he lives in the East Village, but still desperately clings to the notion that winter is supposed to be just a two-month excuse to wear a jacket and long pants. He currently works at the New York Observer on their Betabeat blog, and has previously written for Esquire and MLB.com. He also occasionally tweets.
