I was part of a small group that operated as a startup within Hearst Entertainment & Syndication. I worked on CosmoBody, a subscription video digital platform that was an extension of the Cosmopolitan brand. I created the editorial calendar, social media strategy, assisted on set, and pitched ideas to executives.
I also appeared on camera as a host for food, fashion, and dating segments (clips at right). CosmoBody is now available on YouTube. A few of my favorite videos are below.
I started out at The Knot as an assistant editor mainly working on WeddingChannel.com. By the time I left, I'd covered the royal wedding, edited, pitched, and written for the national and regional Florida magazines, and TheKnot.com. I also appeared as a wedding expert on national TV shows including the Today Show, Access Hollywood, Inside Edition, and Fox & Friends. My work was syndicated nationally in the L.A. Times, MSN, and Yahoo.
Maybe the coolest job any New Yorker can hope for. I got my start at the NY Daily News in the features department, covering fashion week, red carpet events, and a slew of local New York happenings. (Oh, and I also wore some bizarre shoes.)
I worked at Aol first as a homepage editor during the day, and then as the night editor in charge after 5 p.m. I covered heartbreaking national events, including the Boston marathon bombing. Thankfully, I also covered exciting moments like the World Series and numerous celebrity gossip items.
