Suban openly suffers from a serious case of wanderlust. A seasoned traveler, she has called four of the world's seven continents "home" in her lifetime. Now, she happily resides in Lansing's Moores Park Neighborhood where she shares a home with her husband and son, and a hermit crab named "Hermes."

Suban began her reporting beat working for a music magazine, BMA Mag, in her Australian hometown, interviewing the likes of Comedian Margaret Cho and the Buena Vista Social Club. After moving to Lansing, she worked as a freelance writer for the Lansing State Journal and fulltime as a communications professional.

A lover of all things local, you can find Suban frequenting many of Lansing's locally owned restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, museums and parks.

Managing Photographer:

It's hard to find someone in Lansing's professional crowd that hasn't been in front of Dave's camera lens. Dave's been taking photos in the Lansing area since 1987 and through his freelance photography business, Trumpie Photography, has developed a client list that includes the area's major PR firms, publications and businesses.

Dave's also captured Mohammad Ali, Senator Hilary Clinton, James Earl Jones and President George Bush on film. His photos have popped up in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press and USA Today. Dave's a Grand Ledge man, but he's snapped his way to Poland, Australia and the Hawaiian Islands.

Dave lives with his wife, Jen, in an 1890 farmhouse. Their children are Piglet and Sydney, an adopted cat and dog. When they can, they leave Piglet and Sydney at home and go to the state's West coast to play with Shooter, their sailboat.

News Editor:

Natalie loves downtowns, dogs and DIY projects. She, her fiance and her boxer Gunshy live in a downtown loft, and the trio are passionate about the urban living experience, from farmer's markets to local nightlife to neighborhood dog parks.  

Never one to amass objects, Natalie has instead collected jobs. Included in her career conquests are such positions as veterinary assistant, downtown development authority director, live-in Swedish maid and reporter. She has written for such publications as the Lansing State Journal, The Ann Arbor News and The Ann Arbor Observer.

Natalie is a proud Michigander, born and raised in Tawas City and a graduate of Michigan State and Eastern Michigan Universities. She has a deep affection for all things Michigan-made, -grown or -imagined. Natalie writes about writing, and sometimes about Gunshy, at natalieburg.com.
