Camille Chacra – General Manager
This shameless broad is here to share what really butters her biscuits about Montreal. A local journalist and avid yapper, Camille takes her torrid relationship with the city very seriously. She is beyond turned on by its passionate love of art, music, fashion, history and other aphrodisiacs, which is why she teamed up with big boss Phil in early 2012 to jumpstart this Em-tee-ell bible. Through the neglected richness of the written word, she hopes to charm everyone into loving the city as much as she does. xx
Jake Bleiberg - Managing Editor
Jake Bleiberg is an independent journalist, American ex-pat, vagabond philosopher, and the slowest bike mechanic in the East. When not hunched over his laptop writing in one of Montreal’s best cafes, he can be found on his bike, or hunched over a beer (not writing) in one of Montreal’s worst bars.
Courtney Baird-Lew – Music Editor
Courtney is a writer, music enthusiast, and soon-to-be Communication Studies graduate. If she’s not hanging around a cafe, writing, and drinking black coffee, you can usually find her somewhere around St. Henri, sipping on the finest gin the neighborhood has to offer.
Giuliana Contavalli – Fashion Editor
Jessica Prupas – Culture Editor
