New York Magazine named the 27-year-old “the most famous young journalist in the city,” The New York Observer called her a “cross between Paris Hilton and Ayn Rand,” and her August 2008 WIRED cover outsold every other issue in the last decade, save three. Since 2006, she’s made over 400 on-air tv appearances, including CNN, MSNBC, Vh1, E!, Fox, CBS, and NBC. The former Editor-at-Large for Star magazine, she’s currently a columnist for Time Out New York, and has written for Cosmopolitan, Maxim, New York magazine, The Huffington Post, Men’s Health and others.

The co-founder of, which garners over 800,000 visitors every month, she also co-hosts and exec produces the popular internet chat show, TMI Weekly, with Next New Networks. She’s been hired to speak to companies like A&E, Unilever, Microsoft, and MIT’s Sloan School on new media and innovative marketing strategies, and is a frequent panelist at conferences, where she relishes the copious use of nametags.

She graduated from Georgetown in 2004 with a degree in political science, and was the youngest legislative correspondent on Capitol Hill during the 107th Congress. Her father is still waiting for her to get a “real job” with health insurance.
