Allow ourselves to introduce...ourselves...

We've been working hard (and drinking lots of coffee) to get THE LOCAL all ready to go for the fine folks of NoLibs and beyond. There's much to do before our launch, but we figured now would be a great time to take our heads out of the sand and introduce ourselves!

As we grow THE LOCAL community over the next few months, we're excited to get to know you both on- and off-line. We hope you'll take a second to read a snippet about us - and be sure to say Hello if you see us wandering around the 'hood!



Jackie's got a background in writing, editing, and marketing. She'll be the one curating the content on THE LOCAL and working with contributors to make everything fun to read and informative. She's like a friendly overlord who likes to talk to people and pick food off your plate.


Tech Guy

Jim knows how to make websites function well and how to code things the rest of us mortals don't understand. You know he's doing a good job when you're not complaining about the site being crappy. He is a glorious unsung hero who accepts tokens of appreciation such as bourbon and cheesesteak eggrolls. 



Alex is a recent Creative Writing graduate of Ohio Northern University who’s heading to Rosemont College to pursue her Master’s this fall. She likes reading, Netflix, video games, Ultimate Frisbee, and spending time with family and friends. 


Short Copy & Marketing

Spenser is a fiction and copy writer living in Philadelphia. He is a graduate of Advertising from Temple University where he studied copywriting, media planning, take-out burritos, and milkshakes.​


Features & Biz Development

Shazia is a proud S. Jersey native who travels almost 4,000 miles to the University of Edinburgh to pursue her degree in English Lit. Still, Philly’s culture and food keep bringing her back.  For fun, she loves baking, basketball, black tea, and Seinfeld.
