I'm a professional writer who has lived in New York for 15 years. I just published my first book with great success, and am now working on a TV and film project related to the book. I'm very connected in the food world, and spend much of my time learning about chefs and gastronomy. DUMBO is a very special place to me, it's very magical; sometimes it feels like Malibu, other times like Paris. Very inspiring!
