After almost three years of working on Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood as Managing Editor, the time has come for me to pass the torch to the next in line. While I had intended to write some sort of grandiose proclamation to sound my departure and welcome their arrival, it has become quite evident that the best way to do nothing is to intend to do something.
So because anything is better than nothing, I will just say thank you to the contributors with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work and welcome our three new editors to Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood.
Garrett Houghton is a Kansan, writer, and lover of all things deep fried. He currently lives in New York, and has yet to find a corned beef sandwich he did not like.
Theresa Reed is originally from a rural town in Tennessee. She currently lives, works, and writes in Manhattan. She is an NYU alumna (2013) and Fantasy Football Regular Season Champion (2012).
Sofije Brija is a native New Yorker, blogger, poet and fast food lover. An NYU alumna (2013), she continues to write about her experiences and observations on a daily basis.
