Rebekah currently manages editorial and product at WhereBy.us’s first local media property, The New Tropic, which launched in January 2015 in Miami. Rebekah has worked as a news designer, municipal reporter, art director and web editor at various newspapers and as an editor and a communication manager at the University of Miami. She co-founded and helps to lead Code for Miami, a Code for America brigade, and Hacks/Hackers Miami.
The New Tropic makes stories and experiences that help curious locals explore and connect with Miami. We publish a daily e-mail newsletter that curates the day’s local news and shares original stories about the people, places and ideas that make Miami great. We also produce events, from tours to art lessons to civic forums, that get locals together, exploring with and learning from each other.
