Mona Buehler was born in Germany, raised in California and until recently, lived in New York City. She adores travel, culture, food, wine, mixology, outdoor running, yoga, bike riding and believes in a balanced, eco-conscious and healthy lifestyle. She is obsessed with Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, organic produce and gourmet groceries (she blames her Euro-culture upbringing and foodie father). She made the pilgrimage from the Bay Area to Brooklyn seven years ago for the career challenge and adventure, and her two loves, Josh and her cat Bijou, followed. Now they’re back and discovering life in San Francisco’s Inner Mission. An avid traveler, Mona will never forget moments like petting Beluga whales in Mystic, CT, being inappropriately greeted by gigolos walking the streets in Amsterdam, learning how to make conch salad on Harbour Island, planning the perfect party in a charming “heuriger” in Vienna’s Grinzing district, witnessing 375 vintage automobiles and 150 shiny new Ferraris start the Mille Miglia race in Brescia, Italy, discovering that Cologne’s Rhein-Seilbahn travels directly over a nude-friendly hotel pool and encountering the ultimate “swim up bar” on idyllic, Robinson Crusoe-inspired Sandy Island, Anguilla. A bi-coastal writer, editor and producer, Mona Buehler specializes in travel, food and lifestyle media and has worked in digital, magazine and book publishing. As a Senior Deputy Editor at CBS’ Watch! Magazine, she manages their unique lifestyle section BLISS, produces advertorial integrations, packages special projects and assists with social media efforts. She has also contributed to Simply the Best Magazine, CLEAR Magazine, offMetro, Behind the Burner, Hybrid Magazine, Peachpit Press, Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, among other outlets.
