︎ THE TIDAL TEAM ︎
EDITOR IN CHIEF
Anna WolfThough she’s been splitting her time between New York and Los Angeles for 20 years, photographer Anna Wolf is a California girl at heart. But shoots have taken her all over the world, including South Africa, Thailand, and France. In 2014 Anna launched Tidal magazine, a place to showcase her work and the work of her peers, mixing New York sensibilities with a laid-back West Coast vibe.
Jaelani Turner-WilliamsJaelani is an Ohio-raised culture writer who’s written about music, design and everything in-between. Somehow, her collection of throwback publications like Blender, Giant, Rap-Up and Vibe accumulated since junior high magically brought her to this point. When Jaelani isn’t reading or contemplating her next trip, she’s crossing off interviews on her manifestation list one pitch at a time.
Tida TepTida is a Cambodian-American designer, art director, and educator. In 6th grade, she knew she was destined for design when her Backstreet Boys obsession lead her to make photoshopped posters for friends. Today, she works with brands in the fields of fashion, beauty, tech, and culture and she teaches typography at Cooper Union.
Muzam AghaMesmerized by the flashing lights, glitz and glamour of a photo shoot he saw in a Bollywood film, London-born and Miami-raised Muzam Agha, knew at the age of eight that he was destined to work in photography. Serving as casting and photo director/producer for multiple editorial and advertising clients, Muzam keeps his creative juices flowing by solo back-packing across the globe (he’s collected stamps in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Thailand, Istanbul and Costa Rica to name a few). His side gig: ghost hunter.
Masha SpaicMasha is a Brooklyn-based creative producer who dreams of facilitating visual magic. For the past 8 years, she's been doing just that for clients big and small. When she isn't wielding her weapons of efficiency, you can find her traveling the world scouting out the future location of her commune of makers, scouring the globe for just the right waters in which to delve deep.
Alison LewisAlison Lewis is a New York–based stylist and fashion editor. People always assume she’s from California, but she actually spent her childhood moving all over the U.S. Her work is influenced by babes of the 1970s, pretty much any uniform, and all things things Rihanna. When she is not adding to her collection of overalls she is making collages and eating ice cream.
Talia NuttingTalia is a Boston transplant who made her way to Brooklyn to see what all the fuss was about. She spends her days as an ad agency producer, and moonlights as a shower singer. She’s worked on beauty, entertainment, food, and travel brands, and dazzles her shower with interpretive renditions of Adele, Whitney Houston, and Beyonce classics.
Jackie MalamudJackie was born and raised in Amsterdam—but not the cool one. She graduated from a liberal arts college and violated her parent's wishes by entering the art industry. Today, she works as a brooklyn-based art director for clients in the beauty and fashion spaces. When she’s not pushing pixels, you’ll find her perfecting family recipes or snuggling with her two cats.
Jessica HodgsonFrom a (shockingly) young age, people told this west coast native that she seemed like a New Yorker, so at 17 she applied to NYU and decided to give it a whirl. Currently based in Brooklyn, Jessica is an in-house photo & video producer that loves having the opportunity to flex her creative muscles, while also fulfilling her innate desire to dismantle chaos and get things done. Outside of work, Jessica is particularly proud of her ability to keep plants alive, and will happily give you unsolicited advice on yours.
