Larry Cooney Jr.

Larry Cooney Jr. is a traditional fine artist who dabbles in any medium one could use. He earned a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York City and played in various hardcore and punk rock bands before beginning his career of multimedia and web design. Cooney more or less forgot about traditional art for over a decade, but recently started drawing again. Simply put, he just really missed it. (The iPad Pro has played a large part in his drawing resurgence.) Cooney resides in central New Jersey with his wife, Cristina and their dog, Oliver. See the first of his illustrations for our monthly "An Hour With ..." column on page 30. 

 

Paul A. Eisenstein

Paul A. Eisenstein has spent nearly four decades covering the automotive industry. Despite that longevity, "I've never seen things change so quickly," as they have over the past few years, he says. Read his report on how automakers — and nonautomotive competitors — are tackling the concept of self-driving cars. Eisenstein's story on page 62 also explores the question of whether Detroit-based automakers are well positioned to take the lead i this latest horse race. Eisenstein is the publisher of thedetroitbureau.com, and is a frequent contributor to our sister publication, DBusiness magazine. 

 

Sydnee Thompson

Sydnee Thompson grew up fewer than five miles from Word of Faith International Christian Center in Southfield, where an oil well was constructed in 2016. The incident not only surprised her, but also made her curious about what other development was occurring in southeast Michigan (page 28). "It's definitely unrealisting to think we can abandon every pollution source," she says, "but at the very least, I think it's important for citizens to be well-informed." Thompson has worked as a copy editor for Hour Media since 2015. 

 

Ilene Wolf

Ilene Wolff is a Detroit-area freelance writer who specializes in health, medicine, and technology issues. She wrote this month's article on a gene editing technology known as CRISPR, a sophisticated tool that has the potential to prevent diseases (see page 26). Reporting on the story took Wolff from Michigan State University's new, high-tech genome editing facility to her own beating heart, one that's affected by an inherited genetic disorder.
