Meet The Team - Hamilton City Magazine Skip to main content
Celebrating all things Hamilton / Welcome Message

 



Jeffrey Martin

Publisher

Jeff loves music, politics, hiking, cities, the Leafs and yes, all things Hamilton. A quintessential Hamiltonian, he got to know this city well in what seemed like a game of neighbourhood hopscotch growing up. Like urban nomads, his family moved from east to west and north to south covering 14 Hamilton neighbourhoods. But it was Westdale where he planted permanent roots, and downtown that inspired his love of cities and city life.


Jeff’s passion for music led him to become a founding member of McMaster’s CFMU-FM and co-author of Hamilton’s music strategy. He recorded two albums with folk-rock act, The Caretakers. An accomplished writer, after completing a diploma in writing (Sheridan), Jeff celebrated his first published piece, Hamilton’s Celluloid Palaces, (Hamilton Magazine 1984), which showed a glimpse of his love for Hamilton’s vibrant artistic and architectural past. He went on to receive his undergraduate and graduate degrees from McMaster University. Jeff is excited to be part of the team that hopes to inspire others to love this city as much as he does.


Meredith MacLeod

Associate Publisher + Editorial Director

Meredith MacLeod is a third-generation Hamiltonian and was raised in Binbrook. She graduated from McMaster University before grudgingly leaving Hamilton to get a Master’s degree in journalism from The University of Western Ontario. Meredith was delighted to be hired by the Hamilton Spectator and to buy a house in Ward 2. She spent 12 wonderful years at the Spec, helping to document the unfolding transformation of the city. For the last six years, she’s built a successful freelance career as a writer, editor and university instructor. It was always a thrill to have a byline in the former Hamilton Magazine. To be part of a fantastic team creating a new urban publication for this amazing city is truly a dream come true.


Marc Skulnick

Editor

You might recognize Marc Skulnick as the former editor of Hamilton Magazine and BIZ Magazine where he spent eight years celebrating the amazing people and businesses that call the city home. In addition to his time in the journalism industry, Marc’s writing has appeared in the Huffington Post, Hamilton Spectator, Toronto Star and History Magazine, among others. Marc has also worked as a product developer for Club Monaco under Joe Mimran, and spent a number of years at Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment.


Marc is a transplanted Torontonian, by way of Southend-on-Sea, England, and moved to his adopted hometown in 2009, drawn by Hamilton’s big-city vibe, historic lower city tree-lined streets and genuine potential to be an amazing place to raise a family. Marc is a big advocate for local charities and was honoured to receive Food4Kids Hamilton’s Making A Difference Award in 2018. When he’s not making a positive impact in the city, Marc is an avid runner – he’s an Around the Bay Race regular – a proud dad and a massive Forge FC, Honey Badgers and Bulldogs fan. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more passionate and enthusiastic Hamiltonian and Marc is thrilled to be editor of the new HAMILTON CITY MAGAZINE. Follow him on Twitter at @Marc Skulnick
