Writer

Michelle Maltais serves as deputy director of audience engagement. Since she joined the Los Angeles Times in 1997 as a copy editor, Michelle has gone where no one has gone before. (Yes, she’s a bit of a “Star Trek” nerd as well.) She served as the newsroom’s first broadcast producer and interactive video executive producer, in addition to occasionally writing on a variety of topics including technology and family. In her off time, Michelle geeks out on grammar, sci-fi and movie minutiae.
