Angela Blumen Graphic Designer & Art Director
"Bri and I have been online pals for maybe 8 years? We met on tumblr, and back then I was working on making my own magazine so I could learn how to do graphic design. Bri and I spoke once that if she were to do a magazine, I would design it! It’s rare I get into projects where I don’t have any doubts, but with Sea Together Mag I was 100% sure that this is what I am going to do. Although I do not have a surf background (most of my life I’ve been living in landlocked cities, or in the north), I am very fond of the culture, and I can’t wait to take my first surfing lessons this summer! I work as a designer and photographer, and I’m very fond of art, environmental science and the internet."
Mikaela Horvath Assistant Editor, Copy Editor, Developmental Editor
"My name is Mikaela. I know Brianna because she is my rad cousin! Though I am not a surfer and don't dance on waves, I dance on the earth and sand and admire surfers from the shore. Ballet is my favorite type of dance. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Rhetoric and Writing Studies from SDSU. When Brianna reached out to me about being an Assistant Editor for the print magazine, I knew it would be a fantastic opportunity to refine my editing skills. It has been wonderful to be a part of a chorus of contributors around the world who have donated their time; writing and editing skills; and hearts to make waves for this project. I am excited about Sea Together's mission to give women surfers greater visibility and afford them a platform through which they can redefine how they are portrayed in the sport."
