Madi oversees social media strategy for 5280’s and 5280 Home’s accounts, as well as writes and edits stories for 5280.com. Born and raised in Aurora, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 2019, working simultaneously for Vox Magazine in Columbia, Missouri, and later interning at Women’s Wear Daily in New York City, where she covered the entertainment and fashion industries. She joined 5280 full-time in 2020. Madi holds a deep appreciation for the great outdoors but an even deeper distrust of her coordination, so she’s not as adventurous as most of her colleagues. She is, however, passionate about anything arts and culture. And when she’s not writing, you can find her dancing, scrolling the depths of Twitter, or researching new food items to use as a vehicle for tzatziki.
