Kristine is a born-and-bred New Yorker who has more than 20 years of experience as an editor, writer, and site director for many prominent lifestyle brands including Martha Stewart Living, The Nest, Yahoo Life, Real Simple, Prevention, and YourTango. She loves to deep dive into other cultures, fully immersing herself like a local. She's explored a haunted forest in Transylvania at night, toured a stunning mosque in Abu Dhabi containing the world's largest hand-woven carpet (it holds the Guinness World Record), gone sand dune bashing in Dubai and felt actual magic emanate from the pyramids of Chichen Itza. By far, her best culinary experiences have been in Instanbul and Morocco. When she's not traveling or writing, she's either reading or pursuing her skincare obsession.


Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Journalism from Brooklyn College.
