What Was Your Inspiration For Starting The Magazine?
Cece: My inspiration for starting the magazine is the kinship between Malibu and Montauk and all the people I know who live between Malibu & Montauk. It was the perfect companion publication to my Malibu magazine, 90265. I was looking for people to collaborate with, those who could authentically represent the Montauk lifestyle (both old and new), and thankfully, I connected with Laura through a mutual colleague. She took the reigns, building a stellar staff which includes Pat Fallon, our managing editor, who is born and bred in Montauk. Laura: Cece reached out to me last fall to head up MTK Magazine. I admit, when I first heard of the plan to start a magazine devoted to Montauk, I was pretty skeptical. But, Cece wanted to do something different. She wanted to create a publication that reflects the community. Montauk has given me some of the finest moments of my life, and by celebrating what makes it unique on the pages of MTK I hope to repay that generosity at least in part.
