If you asked me five years ago, where I saw myself as 2016 came to an end – I would have never thought I’d be doing what I’m doing. This year has been a whirlwind of a ride for me. As we celebrate another year of Art Basel, I’m personally celebrating one year since I decided I wanted something more fun and exciting in my life. I was always fairly shy and didn’t like the idea of going places by myself, but I knew the only way I could get out of my comfort zone was to do just that. So I took three days off of work and ventured through Art Basel on my own. I attended great events, made new friends, and fell in love with an entirely different world.
Fast forward a year later, I’ve left my corporate accounting job and I’m fully focused on exploring and learning everything I possibly can about Miami, especially Brickell, and sharing it with anyone who is interested in listening. From the trendiest new restaurants – to the coolest cocktails and best views to enjoy while drinking them – to what new startup company needs to be on your radar – and what gym is offering the best workout of the week. I’m aiming to have all the answers! If I don’t have them, then I’ll make it my mission to find them!
My heart has always been in Brickell. I’ve been commuting to Brickell five days a week since the summer of 2005. There wasn’t even a Starbucks back then! Can you picture Mary Brickell Village as a flat parking lot?! Insane, I know! I’ve watched this city turn into the glorious (traffic-filled) metropolitan area that it is today, where if you didn’t want to leave Brickell, you wouldn’t have to. Everything you could possibly need or want is right around the corner. We’ve got ocean views and Miami’s tallest buildings and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
As newly reigning Editor In Chief, my goal keep on top of Brickell’s happenings and to keep our readers informed along the way. We live in a gorgeous city that deserves recognition and I would love to be part of making that happen!
