Gift-giving, party-throwing, or new spot in town, Joanna has the tips to help you stay in the know. Having experience working in hospitality at hotels, gyms, and restaurants as well as event planning has given Joanna a unique perspective on what makes a great experience.
After graduating from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Joanna left the snowy winters of New York and headed west to pursue a creative lifestyle and balmy weather. After over a decade in Los Angeles, Joanna retains her New York roots and balances east coast realism with west coast chill. Joanna has worked as an actress, production assistant, teacher and writer in the entertainment industry. This real-world experience solidifies her background to write as an expert on many facets of the entertainment world.
Joanna is willing to try anything... once. As long as she lives to tell the tale, you can expect and honest and funny perspective on any exercise fad. If there is a class or a video or even some pictures on a wiki-how, Joanna will bring her lululemons and sweat it out for the best possible review of the latest celeb-obsession or the oldest vintage VHS-at-home-workout.
Blog posts from Joanna make the reader feel like they are being spoken to directly from an old friend. Joanna has a way of blogging that feels very conversational and anecdotal. Her own personal blog is what garnered her first contracted writing assignment. The editor of a magazine stumbled across it and enjoyed what he saw so much he reached out for contribution to his publication. While Joanna no longer blogs for personal use, she now blogs for other sites.
