I had the pleasure of working with CRAVE Guide NYC this past spring.
“CRAVE new york city innovatively connects urban gals to the sassiest, gutsiest, most inspiring people they need to know in NYC. Our modern marketplace of soirees, gatherings and online networking serves as your ambassador to everything there is to CRAVE about the Big Apple.”
I had a blast meeting and photographing these incredible women!
