The Ambition Interviews began as a project between my college roommate, Hana Schank, and I, who attended Northwestern University in the early ’90s. What had happened, we wondered, to all of our brilliant, hard-working friends from our college days? Had life come together as they had hoped? We reached out to 37 other members of our sorority’s graduating class, and those conversations became the foundation of the essays published Monday in The Atlantic. Yipppppeeee!
Excited to be on the contributors page of the Domino winter issue—have been doing a lot of fun work for the interiors magazine. Check out my winter features on designer Abby Clawson Low’s incredible Mexico City home, entertaining tips from food and drinkologists I adore, using stripes in awesomely bold new ways, and leather (enough said).
A project that Hana Schank and I have been working on for many months will culminate soon in a series of essays on women, work, and ambition, in The Atlantic. Thanks for visiting!

Currently I split my time between a multimedia research project with a college colleague; managing a harried wife, two adorably maddening children, and volunteering for our public school; sweating it out at the Dodge Y; cooking passable meals from farm-fresh food; and watching America’s favorite television shows approximately three years after they’ve exited the zeitgeist.
