Marti Trgovich is a writer and editor in New York, where she’s lived since 2004. She’s held full-time roles at Vox Media, Hearst Magazines, and Time Inc., and she spent her early years freelancing at Martha Stewart, Condé Nast, New York Magazine, and other places. 

 

She is currently the Head of Content at Overheard, and before that she was an editor at animal brand The Dodo, where she helped to shape voice and develop brand standards over eight years. 

 
She thinks life would be boring without books, and she is likely reading at least five at any given time. She is currently working on a novel set against the backdrop of gloomy Victorian England, which she promises is a lot funnier than it sounds. 
 

Animals are close to her heart, and her proudest professional moment so far (aside from being surprised with an award in front of lots of people) is the time she got to spearhead a holiday surprise for homeless pets. On that note, she is thrilled to have recently become a volunteer at her local shelter.

 
Her last name is Croatian and is pronounced TUR-go-vich.
