Wearing a “beard” she made out of cotton balls and a manila folder, Liz Tracy once introduced herself to Rick Ross as Rick Ross.
She spent three years as New Times Broward Palm Beach‘s music editor and was most recently employed full-time as Perez Art Museum Miami’s grant writer. She is Tom Tom Magazine‘s managing editor and worked as weekend news editor at Inverse.
In about 2007, Liz figured out that the internet was a wonderful place to express her unpopular opinions and established the websites Miami, Bro and The Heat Lightning. She’s since written for publications such as Miami New Times, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, Ocean Drive, The Huffington Post, NBC Miami, Time Out Miami, Insomniac, and The Daily Dot.
Liz has her master’s degree in religion from Florida State University. She taught classes on public policy at Florida International University and new media journalism at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami.
You may have seen her as the interviewer in the viral “Butt Hole Tattoo Girl” video that was featured on Real Time with Bill Maher, MTV, and Comedy Central.
