Sonny Wizelman

A longtime live steamer who has more than 50 years experience in printing and publishing, Sonny Wizelman has served Steam in the Garden as advertising manager since January 2011.

A frequent contributor to SitG, Wizelman is well known in the small-scale live steam hobby for his ability to “weather” locomotives and rolling stock and has organized Southern California backyard steamups for almost two decades. He has built many interesting locomotives out of gathered parts and has written about his experiences frequently in the magazine. A profile of Wizelman was recently published by the site CuratingLA.com.

From 2002-2012, Wizelman was the lead member of Steam Events LLC, the producer of the National Summer Steamup, handling general administration, registration and accounting for the annual event. Wizelman has been print production manager with the Culver City, Calif. printing and pre-media firm Southern California Graphics for more than 20 years and lives in Los Angeles.
