Jennifer Chininis

Editor in Chief

Dallas native and University of Texas grad Jennifer Chininis has spent the majority of her career in local and regional media. During a long tenure at D Magazine, she held nearly every editorial position imaginable, from managing editor to online editorial director, where she got a taste for the exciting, fast-paced world of online journalism. After leaving D, she explored the digital marketing and social media world at companies like Central Market. As editor in chief for CultureMap Dallas, she returns to the role she cherishes most: city curator and insider. But this time she gets to explore that role in the digital space.
