Alex Macon


I am a writer and editor with experience working in newspapers, magazines, and the wild west of digital publishing. I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2012. After almost two years as a reporter for the Galveston County Daily News, I was hired to be the online arts editor for D Magazine at the start of 2015. I became the online managing editor for the magazine in 2017.

Comfortable with both 500-word listicles and 5,000-word features, I spend my days creating and editing content on any number of subjects, including politics, culture, nightlife, lifestyle, and design. I live in Dallas.
