Daisy Hutzell-RodmanManaging Editor

Hutzell-Rodman has worked in print media for more than 20 years. Her byline appears in publications ranging from the Omaha World-Herald to national trade magazines. Her favorite stories are those about people, whether a dedicated small-business owner or a passionate hobbyist. When not working at Omaha Publications, Hutzell-Rodman can be found hunting for good vegetarian food, reading novels, and spending time with husband Wade Rodman and their 3.5 cats (three are theirs, the fourth belongs to the neighbor, but don’t tell him that). Together they collect vinyl, attend music festivals, and travel in their 1963 Microbus.


Sarah LemkeContributing Photographer

Lemke has been contributing photography to Omaha Magazine since 2013. Lemke also operates her own photography business and currently works alongside Bill Sitzmann (since 2012). She previously worked as the photo editor for Fat Brain Toys, as a photographer for radio station KZUM in Lincoln, and recently returned from Los Angeles, where she spent a year working on music and commercial videos. On top of being a federally licensed drone pilot, she is an avid motorcycle rider (a trait inherited from her parents), a dog fanatic, and a music enthusiast who’s always looking for her next adventure through traveling or being outdoors.

Matt WieczorekCreative Director

Wieczorek earned a degree in graphic design, computer graphics, and illustration. In his 15-year career he’s worked in leadership roles at various firms, from startups to Fortune 1000s, joining Omaha Publications in 2015. The Ralston native grew up the youngest of four boys. With that much built-in competition and raw energy in the household, it’s no surprise that sports were a big outlet: he wrestled, played football, and ran track. He continues that active lifestyle with Chelsie, his lovely wife of 10 years; hiking, biking, and camping whenever they can get away. He also enjoys woodworking, metalworking, and acting as a shade-tree auto mechanic. When not creating on-screen or on the trail, Wieczorek can be found with his two cherished pups by his side, tasting fancy whiskies and, occasionally, a cigar.
