Management Team

NIKKI WOOD, President and Editorial Director
During the 1990s, Nikki Wood was the co-owner, publisher, and business manager of Coast Magazine, located in Newport Beach, California. This publication served the communities of coastal Orange County and garnered a reputation for its elegant layouts, rich content, and clean, beautiful covers — a magazine that doubled as a coffee-table book.

JIM WOOD, Senior Writer
Jim Wood, also former co-owner of Coast, has written articles and op-ed pieces for such Orange County publications as the Orange Coast Daily Pilot, Metropolitan Journal, OC Metro, and Coast Magazine. His preferred topics are local and global issues, travel, and special interest stories. In 2000, Jim and Nikki Wood sold Coast Magazine to the Orange County Register and, after traveling the world, relocated to Marin County and began formulating Marin Magazine. The story of their publishing partnership is best expressed by Nikki’s comment: “What can be better than doing what you love, in a place you love?”
