With a Master's in New Media Publishing from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, I have had the pleasure of contributing health and culture pieces to Doctor Oz, Shape, Gothamist, MTV, NYLON, Inked, and MilkMADE, as well as serving as a Senior Editor/ Producer for Healthguru.com. Beyond that: You can tell a lot about a person from whom they would invite to an imaginary dinner. I would invite Jim Henson, Lisa Simpson, and Betty White. Real quick though, since I know you’re super curious about what would be served: vegan ice cream! But you can tell even more about a person from the conversation spilling from their dinner table: “Well, of course anything is possible” … “Weekend in the Hamptons or a day volunteering at an animal shelter? Let me grab a leash — animal shelter, hands down” … “There really is something awesome about bridge runs, especially when the sun’s kissing the Hudson River.” If only Jim, Lisa, or Betty could have gotten a word in. At least the ice cream was amazing — and cholesterol-free!
