Welcome to the Somerville Beat!

I’m Elyse Andrews, writer, editor, photographer and passionate Somerville resident.

My decade-long career as a writer and editor has taken me all over the country and allowed me to tackle diverse subjects like the financial industry, education, health and regional issues. I landed in Somerville four years ago and while I’ve loved it the whole time, it seems that there’s never been a better time to be here than right now.

From an active local food movement fueling multiple farmer’s markets to new businesses cropping up in previously forgotten squares, Somerville is alive with innovation, creativity and passionate people working to build a strong community.

At the Beat, you’ll find a guide to this small town in a big city.

I hope you like what you find and look forward to your feedback!

See you around town,

P.S. If social media is your thing, I invite you to follow the Beat on Twitter and Facebook
