About Marc Ramirez
RAMIREZ, MARC is a lifestyles reporter for the Seattle Times, where he has covered cyber, canine and consumer culture, food and drink, random subcultures and people on the fringe since 1998. He has a love-hate relationship with his native Phoenix, where among the few things he misses are sunsets, Mexican food and the smell of the desert after it rains. In Fall 2001, he reported on Cuban hip-hop as social movement as a recipient of the Pew International Journalism Fellowship. He spent two happy years at the Phoenix New Times, briefly infiltrated the Wall Street Journal and began his career at the Phoenix Gazette, may it rest in peace. He dabbles in screenwriting, finds peace in cooking and apparently enjoys rooting for hard-luck sports teams. He has an American studies degree from the University of Notre Dame and a master’s in journalism from UC Berkeley.
