Rachel Slade

Executive Editor

Rachel arrived at Boston magazine six years ago, fresh from a career in architecture, to helm its design quarterly, Boston Home, and she continues to run that publication while writing and editing long-form pieces for the monthly. As articles editor, Slade seeks stories that tell us about our city through those who call it home, and she is particularly drawn to people with singular passions, from selling condos to millionaires to mucking about in city politics to practicing percussion 20 hours a day for a shot at the BSO. Not one to sit still for long, she'll happily hop on a horse, motorcycle, plane, or bike, if it'll help the story along, and in her time here, she's done all four. Rachel earned a B.A. in political science from Barnard College, an M.Arch. from the University of Pennsylvania, and built up her writing chops while shelving books at Shakespeare & Co. in NYC, back when that city was nice and gritty.
