The Chicago native moved to downtown Detroit in 2011 and quickly fell in love with the character and hustle of the city. Hinojosa focuses her writing on topics that have defined her six years in the city: electronic music, the artistic and cultural scenes, the civic problems Detroit faces, and the endless list of residents who put their all into resolving those problems.
Joey J. Manuszak
While finishing his last semester at Wayne State University in print journalism, Joey J. Manuszak is pleased to join Hour Detroit magazine as an editorial intern. For Manuszak, Detroit narrates the dialogue of a true underdog story. Although some Americans may perceive Detroit as a nefarious urban sprawl, many Michiganians, including Manuszak, see the city as a rebounding cultural giant. Manuszak believes that Detroit embodies a true river city revival, and he believes his contributions to Hour Detroit can help foster positive vibes for its cause. In his spare time, Manuszak is keen to survey Detroit’s lesser-known nooks and crannies, and to write about them, as his passion is for storytelling. He hopes not to jump on Detroit’s bandwagon, but rather to help pull the wagon.
