I was born and raised in NYC (Queens, to be exact) by Russian immigrant parents, which I only mention because it had such an impact on the person that I am today. After graduating Brooklyn College and then FIT, I immediately began working in the Fashion Industry, where I learned so much about the business, both from a style and business perspective.

In 2010, my husband, Keith (then boyfriend) asked me what hobby I was passionate about and aside from putting outfits together, merchandising and buying and selling things on eBay, I realized I didn’t have a good answer to give him. It was that conversation that led me to start a blog. I started Brooklyn Blonde with no one in mind but myself. Brand partnerships were barely a thing and never in a million years did I think I’d have readers who actually tuned in. Fast forward to seven years later and we’re married, living in Brooklyn and parents to a boy named Nate (born 4/24/2016).
