About The Publisher: Lori Arbel

Welcome to Macaroni Kid Fort Lauderdale! We truly believe we live in one of the most vibrant family-friendly areas in South Florida.

My name is Lori Arbel and I am a native to South Florida.

My 15-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son inspire me to give back to our community, the way I know best. 

I am a South Florida native, artist, and Therapeutic Art Coach guiding young adults and the community through personal journeys of self-discovery and, often, the discovery of their own talents. My passion to create innovative mixed-media art – and to help others bring out their own inner artists - has led me to teach in schools and community spaces for 20+ years. 

I invite you to reach out to me and share your victories. I love hearing about individuals and businesses creating and contributing sincere, amazing and fun services in our town. I am committed to effectively and joyfully sharing them with our readers so they can be a part of celebrating greatness in South Florida too.

Let's Collaborate today!
