Hannah's writing career began as an 18-year-old intern at Elle magazine and The Daily Telegraph (London, England). Here, she experienced the heady world of fashion under the watchful eye of industry leaders such as Hilary Alexander, Fiona McIntosh and Melanie Rickey. This in turn led to contracts with WGSN, Women’s Own, Woman & Home, NYLON, M, Condé Nast Traveller, Daily Candy and more.
At 25, Hannah jetted off to New York to pursue her dream and, at this tender age, in a new Internet world, she pitched, co-founded and directed Profile magazine and its content development offshoot, EMagMaker. The stars were aligned. It was here that Hannah not only met Andrea but also realized her niche talent for developing bespoke content solutions and on-brand communication products.
In the years that have followed, Hannah has segued into marketing communications. In this capacity she has acquired and worked with an impressive portfolio of start-up and corporate clients across the lifestyle industry spectrum, including Tommy Hilfiger, Chico's, Soma Intimates, Zumba, Celebrity Cruises, Carnival Cruise Lines, Silversea, getAbstract, Sandow Media, Shops at Bal Harbour, Royal Flowers, Killing Kittens, Beauty & the Dirt, South Beach Group, Zindigo and GinnyBakes.
P.S. No animals were hurt. Killing Kittens is not what it sounds like… At all. We promise. ;)

Fast forward a few months and Bernarda's and Hannah’s paths merged during Miami’s Art Basel 2013, when they buddied up to produce Skinny Kings' third rendition of Don’t Worry Baby during Art Basel at the Riviera South Beach Hotel. The event was an enormous success and crowned the “night to remember” by World Red Eye.
P.S. Bernarda is a violinist and is currently enrolled at the University of Miami Frost School of Music in the Graduate Music Business Program.
