About Flying Kite

Flying Kite is a weekly online magazine focused on what's next for the city and its suburbs. We're creating a new narrative about Philadelphia, one that connects our readers with everyone and everything moving the region forward. We're highlighting the people, ideas, neighborhoods, companies and institutions that are helping return Philadelphia to world-class city status.

With a talented and experienced group of writers, photographers, videographers and editors, Flying Kite covers the creative thinkers, innovative ideas and developments that are defining the future of Philadelphia. Every Tuesday, we'll tell those stories in a new issue packed with multimedia features. You can get Flying Kite free in your e-mailbox each week if you sign up here.

Publisher: Michelle Freeman
With an ongoing love for her native Philadelphia region, Michelle has been working in marketing and events since she was in high school. Promoting concerts and handling flyer distribution projects as a teen, she eventually headed to Drexel University and received a degree in Corporate Communications while simultaneously working to establish and grow non-profit organization Campus Philly. More recently, Michelle has been operating her own agency, Witty Gritty Marketing & Events. Through this agency, Michelle serves as publisher for Flying Kite and continues to tell the untold stories of the Philadelphia region to the world!

Managing Editor: Lee Stabert
A native Philadelphian, Lee started her journalism career in the alt-weekly world, working as calendar editor at the Nashville Scene while covering bands and blogging about local food. She moved back to her hometown in 2008 to work full-time for the Obama campaign and found herself lured in by walkable streets, hoppy beers and easy access to Citizens Bank Park. She worked as managing editor at Grid magazine, a monthly publication focused on local sustainability issues, and has contributed to the City Paper, Curbed Philly, Magnet magazine and various alt-weeklies across the country. She also knows where to find the city's best tacos. Just ask.
