Flamingo‘s mission is to unify Florida’s diverse cultures and vast landscapes through in-depth journalism, rich storytelling and brilliant photography, creating the go-to destination for Florida’s most compelling stories and inspiring readers to go out and do the things they read in the pages of the magazine and on Flamingomag.com.
Before launching Flamingo in March 2016, Rich worked as a feature writer, journalist and photographer covering travel and culture. Her articles and photographs have appeared in national and international publications such as The Washington Post, Washingtonian, New York Times and Slate.
