I’ve worked in the media for the past 16 years as a producer, writer and editor. I’ve worked in television for big three-letter networks, written about beauty, art and fascinating people for major magazines and consulted as an editor and brand strategist for women’s websites and products.

I’ve interviewed fashion designers and actors in New York City. I’ve sat down with wine makers and heiresses in the Hampton’s. I worked on a live talk show in Washington, D.C., where I preferred powdering politicians noses to politics.

I live in New York City with my husband, who let’s me turn our bathroom into a lab, and our two daughters: Julia, 7, who only needs to wear something pink to feel her best, and Emerson, 1, who, much to her sister’s discontent, looks way better in blue.

Oh, and, of course, our beloved senior-citizen Shih tzu, Molecule (a.k.a. Molly), who has pretty great hair.
