Natalie • Writer, Editor


Writer, Editor

We actually met outside of Brooklyn, far outside of Brooklyn. Try Costa Rica. With the world's best (and hottest) surfers and skaters with the wonderful people of etnies. Natalie and I were the only ladies on the trip, (hard life, right?), we shared a room at the base of a volcano, went surfing in the warmest Costa Rican waters and kept in touch after returning to Brooklyn.

Two years later, Natalie and I caught up in Williamsburg where she showed me a couple of her go-to spots, while telling me about her home in Byron Bay, Australia. She shared stories about amazing artists and celebrities she interviewed while at RUSSH and NYLON magazines and how she found her way as a writer and editor. And while Brooklyn is no Costa Rica, it's home. —Sarah Kim
