In 1997, Angela H. Brown (she/her/hers) was approached to shoot a cover photo for SLUG Magazine. Continuing to work with the mag’s owner at the time, she became the Managing Editor shortly thereafter. In 2000, she took over SLUG, leading the brand in a new direction. Brown launched SLUGMag.com, created a local music compilation series, established SLUG’s podcast and created dozens of successful SLUG Magazine community events. From management and bookkeeping, to I.T. and sales, if there is a discriminate responsibility at the magazine, Brown has worked it all over the 17-plus years she’s been in charge. SLUG is her true passion because it is the intersection of all her personal ardors. And she wouldn’t tell someone that working for SLUG is a job—rather, it’s a lifestyle. Brown oversees the daily goings on by forging relationships within our wonderful community to create new and exciting SLUG events, developing interconnectivity among businesses and sponsorships, providing direction for SLUG’s aesthetic and vision by cultivating team talent to do so, and overseeing the distribution of the magazine, be it online or in print.
