About Us

Locally owned, SRQ MEDIA is a hyper-local media engagement company committed to exploring the relationship between audiences and storytelling with impact in the Sarasota and the Bradenton Area. Founded by Lisl Liang and Wes Roberts in October of 1997, SRQ MEDIA curates print and digital publications, documentaries and branded content to capture the vibrant stories of the people, places and experiences of the West Coast of Florida. SRQ MEDIA cultivates audiences who are curious about the place in which they live and work, and who want to positively impact their hometown by supporting local restaurants, giving back philanthropically, exploring arts and culture and actively participating in producing a robust regional economy.  Our mission is to transform what it means to live and love local.

The flagship publication SRQ Magazine | LIVE LOCAL engages an dynamic group of readers who are primarily residents of the area, either year round or seasonally including creative families, retirees seeking their next passion play, visitors drawn to the natural beauty of the area, young professionals bringing fresh energy and entrepreneurs investing in their companies. Celebrating its 20th year anniversary in 2017, SRQ has garnered print and digital readership of 78,000, connecting readers to new experiences that expand their engagement to the community.

The “SRQ” in SRQ magazine originates from the designated call letters for the local Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. Originally, the letters “SR” were used as the airport’s abbreviation, until the growth in total number of airports required the use of a three-letter code - and so the “Q” was incorporated. Much like the national growth of airports in past years, Sarasota has seen a lot of growth and expansion of businesses, culture, and activity throughout the community. As a regional publication committed to the residents and visitors to both Sarasota and Manatee counties, SRQ resonates “home” and serves as a constant reminder of who and what we proudly represent.

SRQ MEDIA's portfolio includes LOVE LOCAL a regional visitors and newcomers guide celebrating local experiences and destinations and annually distributed to over 400 different lodging establishments and high-traffic locations,  LIVING LAKEWOOD magazine which serves as the definitive guide to enjoying life in one of the fastest growing communities in the nation, DOMICILE magazine, formerly known as Modern Home magazine, celebrating the art and crafts of home design, interiors, architecture and living outdoors on the West Coast, ROCKETKIDS magazine, a biannual family publication featuring local schools, summer camps, experiences for kids and creativity in Sarasota and Manatee and SRQ DAILY, freshly-squeezed local content, delivered directly to the email in-boxes of a powerful group of opt-in, influential subscribers who want to be in the know. 

SRQ MEDIA recently launched the MOVING STORIES documentary and video production division. Moving Stories is steeped in the craft of storytelling which follows the documentary method to uproot and polish great stories to share with the world. In partnership with nonprofit and for-profit businesses, Moving Stories creates, captures and shares visual stories in a thoughtful, memorable and ultimately moving way to connect with hearts and minds.

Wyatt Kostygan

Wyatt Kostygan

VP of Photography and Video

Wyatt Kostygan is the VP of Photography and Video at SRQ Media with senior roles in videography and photography. Born and raised on the east coast of Florida in a sleepy little town, he ventured to Sarasota to attend New College. Having been long captivated by movies and film, his penchant for photography began in college when he looked for a hobby to take him outside and explore the constantly evolving world of digital photography technology. With the purchase of his first camera, he was hooked and the rest is history. Upon graduation, Wyatt answered the call to big city life and moved to New York City to rub elbows and train under talented photographers and filmmakers. But as it often happens, home came calling back by way of an opportunity with SRQ MEDIA and he relocated back to the sunshine state. Since his return to Sarasota, Wyatt has enjoyed seeing the changes that the city has gone through, and is finding more and more reasons to love this perfect mix of city and country life. When he’s not snapping photos in the SRQ Studio or around town scouting the perfect image for a story, you can spot Wyatt enjoying his motorcycle and spending time with his “wonderful, beautiful and intelligent girlfriend.” 

Favorite Fictional Character: That’s a tough one for me. I don’t really like playing favorites when it comes to anything concerning the nuts and bolts of a piece of art. I can say though that movies are certainly my favorite medium if I had to pick.

A trend I have noticed in myself (to what extent it’s Freudian I am not going to comment) is that I favor male characters that are incredibly pathetic and even tragic types, and I tend to think female characters make for far more interesting “everyman” types nowadays. I guess if we are talking recent movies Riggan Thomson from Birdman, Woody Grant from Nebraska, and “Doc” from Inherent Vice are characters I really enjoy. Likewise Frances Ha from her titular film or Hushpuppy from Beasts of the Southern Wild I both love.

Aliases: Wy Guy maybe? My parents told me they tactically picked the name Wyatt because they abhor nicknames. I guess their logic was Wyatt was short enough, rare enough, and weird enough that it would be hard to coin a catchier moniker from.
Favorite Quote: “Whats the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don’t know and I don’t care.” (I have no idea who came up with that but it wasn’t me so I’m calling it a quote.)
Pet Peeve: People who are always late. Being late to something is totally fine, but someone acting surprised that they are late when they are always late drives me up the wall.
Favorite Historical Figure: Being completely honest, I almost certainly don’t have one. Not just because there are too many interesting people to choose from (which of course there are), but because I really have a hard time with idolatry in general. I think I’m just bad with favorites, but of course (no biases here right) I think that’s a good thing.
Favorite SRQ Office Music Channel: If pressed I’d have to say whichever one plays Sultans of Swing from the Dire Straits. I’m not big on lyrical music, but I got a soft spot for 70s rock regardless.
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Snack: These awful little things called “Snappers”. They are just these small pretzels completely smothered in caramel and chocolate, and 90% of the time they are all melted together into one huge mass when you go to open the bag. Can’t get enough of those.

Brittany Mattie

Brittany Mattie

Senior Editor, Social Media and Photo Styling

We recently welcomed Brittany Mattie as the new Special Projects Assistant here at SRQ Magazine. Britt will be coordinating with our very own President | CEO | Editor In Chief | Chief Marketing Officer to develop special projects and launch new programs, while also taking on assignments in editorial, marketing and promotions, events, operations, community engagement and social media.

Britt graduated from Lasell College in Boston MA, with a degree in hospitality and event management and a minor in fashion merchandising. Studying abroad for a year in Gold Coast, Australia caused an inevitable and incurable travel bug that would lead her to take some extended time as a vagabond after graduation before finding a career path that would fit her wayfarer lifestyle. Spending quality time in places like Hawaii, Central and South America and the Pacific Northwest, she decided to land her feet in tourism and guest services for a boutique hotel in Portland, OR. Becoming the hotel's concierge created opportunities to interact with people from all over the world and to visit a handful of amazing hotel properties. Due to a lack of Vitamin D after awhile, she felt the insatiable need for sunshine again and a chase for a more creative outlet, which landed her here in Sarasota with us! She is looking forward to diving right into a hyper-local publication with fresh eyes and a unique voice.

Favorite Fictional Character  Rachel from Friends, Schmidt from New Girl

Aliases Sydney from Sydney, Australia with an pitiful attempt at an Aussie accent

Favorite Quote “Why would you believe that your eternal flame can be snuffed out? I think it all just goes back to some knuckleheaded idea that we must live insatiable lives (more things, more money, more plans, more problems)–instead of embracing our ability to become more insatiable for life (more experiences, more intention, more interaction, more possibility). Keep burnin’, baby.” —Freelance Writer and Director of Toughness for Columbia Sportswear, Lauren Steele

Pet Peeve Small-mindedness, empty gestures, slow walkers, saying “literally” when what they mean is not literal

Favorite Historical Figure Charles Darwin. I mean the man went on a five year voyage around the world on a boat and established the Survival of the Fittest theory (slow walkers- watch out, natural selection will take you out!)

Favorite SRQ Office Music Channel Tropical House, Jazz, Funk, Reggae, Folk/Rock, Country

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Snack Peanut Butter Chocolate Talenti Gelato pints and street tacos (by the dozen)

Favorite Hobbies: Activities involving being in a body of water or on top of a mountain, photography, adventuring in my Jeep with my pup, people watching, gardening and learning how to cook.
