This site came about after I ditched my car and downsized to get myself up to Manhattan. It’s grown and evolved with my almost 10 years here but remains very much true its origin: sharing authentic original content. Occasionally I will highlight brands and organizations I believe provide value to people like me – professionals, working moms, creatives and foodies, or some combination of any or all of the above – and I take the decision to include any of these very seriously. That being said, let’s talk and see what you have in mind.
My blog is focused on a wide variety of things touching on family, food and lifestyle. Occasionally as products and services allow, I am open to considering opportunities to work with you in reviewing or sharing highlighting yours so long as the content aligns with all Grits in the City has come to represent. I do not accept guest posts nor will I share unoriginal long-form copy to promote on your behalf.
Accepting your products or services does not guarantee a positive review of the same. As my blog focuses on sharing my authentic POV, all thoughts regarding my experience with your product/service will be honest and insightful as best fits my content. Rarely will I use or entertain use of imagery that is not unique and/or my own.
In particular I’m interested in:
- Food-related services helpful for new moms/parents
- Services or products that make cooking approachable for less skilled and/or busy cooks
- Services or products for or for parents of an infant (boy, 5 months of age)
- Apparel, accessories or services providing subscription services for new moms, nursing moms or young professionals
- Fitness gear, methods and classes of all sorts
Press / Media Inquiries
Social media is my thing. I spend my days creating engaging social media campaigns and strategies – with experience in working in several verticals. I’ve created social content that’s supported events such as Lady Gaga’s multi-night run to close out NYC’s historic Roseland Ballroom and Justin Timberlake’s Priceless Surprises show – as well as content that’s been tweeted out by the Queen Bey herself.
I’ve spoken at multiple conferences sharing on maneuvering challenges of going social in regulatory environments and how to lead change within an organization hesitant towards social media.
I’m available to speak, be involved in panels or participate in/lead Twitter chats on topics including:
- Work-life balance: the value your individual interests bring in creating the best whole version of you
- New moms: the things that shouldn’t keep you up at night and what I wish I’d known to focus on
- Power in variety: how leveraging a unique combination of professional experiences led to success in my career
- Postpartum fitness: creative approaches to trying to get back into your skinny jeans
- Social media: everything from platform strategies, visual techniques, to translating your blog platform into social campaigns
Thanks for your support and your interest in working with Grits in the City!
