Miami New Times has turned its lens on the Magic City's 30 most scintillating characters — from chefs to athletes to artists to businesspeople. They are all profiled in the links that follow. They aren't all famous. Nor are they obscure. But together they tell the story of America's most international city, where diverse people mix in Homestead fields, Brickell penthouses, and Aventura high-rises.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
