Hailing from the best of the British Isles, Malcolm was born and raised in Derby, England but has been living in the U.S. for longer than he lived in England. If you’re a golfer, you’ll probably meet him on the green one day.

Executive Editor

Although she grew up in New Orleans, Kelly was born in Minnesota and she even spent a few pre-Big Easy childhood years right next door in Gulf Breeze. She has also lived in San Francisco and New York City. An avid traveler, Kelly has backpacked through Europe, driven across Ireland and fallen in love with Italy. She’s been happy to call Pensacola home since 2001. When the workday is done, Kelly enjoys the usual suspects: books, music, food, wine and the company of her daughter Lola. Kelly lives with Lola and their dog Pixie in downtown Pensacola.
