Jeff Waraniak is a former assistant editor for 5280. Before moving from his hometown of Detroit to Denver in 2017, he worked as an associate editor at Hour Detroit magazine where some memorable pieces included a profile of Paul Bunyan, a ride along with an eccentric Detroit cab driver, and an exploration of Detroit-style pizza through the five senses. Since graduating from the University of Michigan, his writing has appeared online and in print in places like Chicago Magazine, Thrillist.com, and National Geographic books. A proud Michigander, Jeff enjoys craft cocktails, breakfast burritos, hockey, and mountain biking…all at the same time.
