Active from 2012 through 2016, Miami Alive was an online magazine that showcase the best of Miami. Adopting a “Beyond the Beach” mentality, the photojournalism site focused on emerging art, featured profiles on local personalities, coverage of underground music events and advice for local and tourists alike on navigating the magic city.

The website, for which I produced, edited, and coordinated content, was recognized as one of the top 10 websites for travelers by the GuardianUK and recognized as one of WLRN’s “9 South Florida Arts and Culture Blogs You Need to Read Right Now

The site remains active today on Facebook and Instagram, where the #MiamiAlive tag continues to see activity from its followers.

So many blogs overlook the importance of good visual impact, but not this one. Miami Alive is good-looking and hard-living – with a focus on the multinational aspect of the city, which is why you'll find a column named Pa q lo Sepa (Spanish slang for FYI). -The GuardianUK
