Mad Woman

7 Apr

My friend Stacey Bendet of Alice & Olivia loaned me the dress and my friend Irene Neuwirth loaned me the earrings and bracelets. They made me feel like a very lucky lady.

New Profile Picture

17 Sep

Aqualillies in NYT

9 Aug

11-AQUA-articleLargeI wrote about the Aqualillies, a synchronized swimming dance troupe, for this Sunday’s New York Times Styles section. Even though I’m pretty embedded in television writing these days, I still like to jump into journalism for a fun story like this one. I also got to work with my favorite editor, Alexandra Jacobs.
