Between The Lines January/February 2023Dec 27, 2022 10:02AM ● By Luis De La Toba
Jesse Kuhnle—Freelance Writer
Kuhnle grew up “just across the river” in Honey Creek, Iowa, but after spending some very formative years as a resident of Dundee, has long considered Omaha home. While earning a news-editorial journalism degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Jesse wrote stories for the sports page of The Gateway while also working at the sports desk of the Omaha World-Herald. He later returned to UNO to earn an elementary education degree and has spent the last 10 years telling stories to sixth-graders. When he’s not spending time with his wife and three small children, Kuhnle can be found reading, watching football, listening to paranormal podcasts, or exploring the great outdoors.
Luis De la Toba—Social Media Manager
De la Toba is a recent graduate from Universidad Tecmilenio in Mexico. He’s a marketer with experience in the digital world, sales, and market intelligence—having worked for various digital marketing agencies before landing a position at Omaha Magazine. De la Toba blends data-driven analytics with a flare for the creative to produce unique and engaging content. Aside from marketing, he’s passionate about creative writing. You can often find him drafting novels and short stories in his free time, pursuing his dream: becoming a published author. He loves books, music (pop, indie, and alternative rock), horror movies, walks on the beach, playing the piano, and cats.
Megan Bartholomew—Freelance Writer
Kitten cuddler, amateur baker, freelance writer, and ravenous reader—all relevant terms when describing Bartholomew. Originally from the mountains of Utah, she moved to Omaha in 2020 with her husband, Ben, who is pursuing a law degree at Creighton University. They currently live in downtown Omaha with their two cats, Ophelia and Summer, and love exploring the metro. During the 9 to 5 grind, Bartholomew works as the editor of Utah Bride and Groom magazine, but by night she can be spotted sniffing around Omaha’s restaurant districts, taking arboretum walks in Lauritzen Gardens, and hiding out among the shelves at Omaha Public Library.
