About

Robert Haynes-Peterson

Robert Haynes-Peterson: I am a writer and editor with over 10 years' experience on luxury lifestyle and lifestyle websites and magazines. I began editing a group of collectibles magazines, migrated to fashion trade, then to luxury fashion and lifestyle (both men's and women's). I've also done some paid photography, and regularly photograph my own articles.

Currently I cover wine, spirits and cocktails for a variety of sites and magazines, including AskMen.com, BC the Magazine, Accent Magazine, Vegas Magazine, IN New York, Fashion Forum Magazine, ModernMan.com and Beverage Media among others. I've also worked with Time Out New York, CBSLocal.com, HalogenLife.com and more in the past. I'm familiar with a variety of CMS platforms (Drupal, Wordpress, etc), and work easily with a broad range of senior editorial personalities. In general, I'm fast, efficient and accurate.

My goal as a writer is to find an informative, entertaining and conversational voice that matches the site's overall tone while welcoming rather than condescending to readers. As an editor I aim for an "invisible" approach where neither the writer nor reader can tell I had a hand in fine-tuning the end product. I also work well and closely with design departments and administrative departments to create a beautiful end product.
