Claudia Moomey—Editorial Intern
Born in California and raised in Omaha, Claudia Moomey is the youngest of two daughters. She graduated from Millard North High School in 2016 before graduating from the University of Nebraska Omaha in 2020 with a Bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in British, Irish, and Anglophone Literature, and minors in History and Medieval/Renaissance Studies. During her free time, when she’s not reading classic literature or putting her collection of Blackwing pencils to paper, she's likely attending various theater shows, photographing local bands at rock concerts, or napping with her Russian Blue cat, Shenzi. She spends a significant amount of time experimenting with recipes, including savory dinners, desserts, and craft cocktails. Moomey hopes to eventually hold an editorial or writing position as a full-time career, where she will implement her strongest opinion: the Oxford Comma is a necessity.
Joey Winton—Graphic Design Intern
Joey Winton is a 22-year-old from Omaha. Nebraska. He attended Doane University from 2019-2023 and graduated with a BFA in graphic design. Outside of art and design he enjoys cooking, writing, playing and listening to music, watching movies—Predator (1987) is his favorite—exercising, and video games. As a saxophone player, his favorite genre of music is jazz, but he also enjoys classical, punk, metal, and pretty much anything that isn’t pop-country. Winton's favorite bands and artists include Breaking Benjamin, Gorillaz, and The Count Basie Orchestra, though the list extends well beyond that. Some of his favorite visual artists include Francisco Goya, Zdzisław Beksiński, and H.R. Giger. His other interests include Star Wars, gin, history, sociology, and sharks. Winton's commissions are open and examples of his work can be found at joeywinton.com.

Throughout her university courses and internships, Veloso developed a particular affinity for arts, culture, and entertainment writing. Born and raised in Omaha, she enjoys exploring, supporting the local art and music scene, and discovering new eateries with friends.
