Profile: Dorothy Hernandez
Copy Editor & Writer
Welcome to my corner of the Interwebs. I am a Chicago native living in Detroit. I moved here first in 2004, moved back to Chicago for a while to work at RedEye, and then came back as an AmeriCorps member. I have loved living and working here ever since. It’s truly a great city to make a name for yourself and do something big. These days, I work at Hour Detroit magazine as a copy editor and writer; working at a magazine has been a dream of mine ever since I grew up voraciously reading Seventeen and Sassy.
I have more than 10 years’ experience writing and editing for digital and print, including The Detroit News and the Chicago Tribune’s RedEye. I am also a regular contributor to The Alcohol Professor and edibleWOW magazine as well as a freelance social media consultant for various clients, mostly food-centered.
NoteStreams By Dorothy Hernandez
Glenfiddich recently held a single malt training at the Detroit Historical Museum, a cultural institution that pays tribute to the city’s rich history, from its beginnings as a fur trading post to the race riots to the reviving metropolis it is today. As a novice Scotch whisky drinker who prefers her liquors clear (or red, as in wine), this was the type of “boot camp” to whip my taste buds and Scotch appreciation into shape. The drill sergeant: Glenfiddich brand ambassador David Allardice, a Texan by way of Scotland (imagine that accent!).
