Me in a nutshell

I was born and raised on Long Island and lived in NYC for about 10 years until i moved out to Los Angeles in 2000. In my "career" i've mostly done online marketing but what i really love is doing dog rescue. I've been helping with local rescues since i've moved here. I've been married for 2 years and have 3 wonderful dogs; Adam, Dingo & Benny!

I Heart

Dogs, the holidays (especially on the east coast, but i make do with christmas in 80 degrees), a great scented candle, flip flops, NPR, a great fitting pair of jeans, t-shirts, drinking champagne with friends, Miami and Paul Begala. That's all i can think of at the moment, but i'll add more.

Tell Us More

Biggest splurge or steal in my closet

I'll change this but for now i'll go with steals. Forever 21 t-shirts! They're long, fit well and are under $5!

do-gooder: Why I am one

I do help out with dog & cat rescue through my friend Lisa's organization, The Rescue Train. I've been helping with rescue since i moved to Los Angeles 9 years ago. Pit Bull education and advocacy is very important to me. I love these animals and they are unfortunately misunderstood and poorly represented. They are a great breed and need the most help.
I also do TNR (trap/neuter/release) with ferel cats in my neighborhood and downtown. I am an urban cat trapper!

Favorite TV shows

Top Chef, Law & Order, Project Runway, Real Housewives (all of them, especially Atlanta!)

Favorite movies
