Here is our current crop of amazing interns:



Araz Hachadourian, Online Reporting

Araz Hachadourian

Araz hails from Pasadena, California and has recently given up trying to convince people that it’s actually part of Los Angeles. Dogs, coffee, and singing loud enough to scare the neighbors are some of her favorite pasttimes.  She’s coming off the heels of an internship with New York Public Radio and currently finishing up a Master’s in Philosophy from San Francisco State University. 

Tony Manno, Online Reporting

Tony grew up in Cleveland and traveled across the Rust Belt to spend his college years in Milwaukee, where he earned a degree in English from Marquette University. After witnessing the Midwest reemerge as a major battleground for workers’ movements, voter suppression, public education, and income inequality, Tony became interested in the power of mass movements to debate and enact radical social change. He revels in the beauty and energy of the Pacific Northwest, though is the jury is still out on whether the dewy Washington air has been a worthwhile trade for Wisconsin cheese curds. Tony is a fiction writer in his spare time and a member of the Seattle Astronomical Society.


Keith Barbalato

Keith made his journey from the suburbs of New York City to Seattle in 2013. Two years after slinging books and printed goods at a local bookstore, and interacting with the great people and spaces of the North West, he finds himself on Bainbridge island finding out what it means to be behind the scenes of magazine production. Keith studied sociology on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and hopes to combine an education based in social theory to phenomena rooted in rich and unique alternative cultures. You can likely find him in a room somewhere reading novels, pushing the boundaries of his own musical appreciation, drawing comics, or maybe he’s out of a room and walking amongst the winter trees of the island, it’s hard to say.
