Name: Kenji Barrett
Location: Albuquerque, NM
Proofreading for The Magazine since: 2002
Proofreader Kenji Barrett and his trusty dog, Kai, stop by each month right before the issue is sent to the printers. Jenn and Kenji review the entire issue, word by word, comma by comma, to make sure nothing is out of place.
Born in Philadelphia, Kenji grew up in New Mexico, and his favorite thing about living here is the sky. He’s been working for The Magazine since 2002.
