Wowee zowee! Just found out I won a bright shinny GOLD for art direction at the National Magazine Awards! High kicks and high fives! Crack open the Veuve Clicquot. Drinks on me, bitches. The winning piece was for Party of One in Puerto Rico shot by the super talented Noah Kalina for Jonathan Goldstein's most hilarious travel feature. I've got to say, working on a story with amazing contributors only makes my job easy. Congratulations to the team. I feel like singing Mamma Said Knock You Out... LL Cool J, take it away!
Check out the behind the scenes and interview with Noah here.
PS I'm also glowing at knowing I received an honorable mention for Big Apple Turnover (photography by Chris Buck) and Body Break (photography by Mark Zibert). Love those two photographers – crazy talented.
