Nice to Meet You

Hello, friends. I’m thrilled and honored to introduce myself as the new editor-in-chief of Stamford magazine.

A little bit about me: I love cities. I love how people move about them fast and spirited. I love that cities are vibrant and eclectic, and how there is so much unfinished business full of possibility. I have a twin love—saltwater.  I grew up spending magical summers on Long Island Sound, knowing how lucky I was to have it nearby. I love the taste of salt on my skin; the smell of low tide; the way I feel on a beach, a boat, a dock at any time of a blue-sky day.

So, when my husband insisted we move from Manhattan nine years ago following the birth of our son, he researched and reviewed. Stamford, he suggested, a city on the Sound, and he was spot on. We love it here.

A little more about me: I’ve spent my career covering pleasure—food, drink, art, travel, fashion—for magazines, books, newspapers and digital publications. To blend my love for this community with my editorial experience and storytelling passion is a dream.

As we shake off the last of winter and welcome the buds of spring, we look outside and in for the renewal that marks the season.

In this issue, my first, Tom Connor invites us all to spend time in gardens that grow wild with colorful, controlled chaos, and to take a dip in swimming holes built for socializing.

Scott Thomas reports on the state of real estate, delivering housing trends and expert insight on navigating the post-pandemic local market.

Suzanne Gannon tours the Shippan Point home of Jill Kirk, whose Instagram account, @verplankavedesign, documents her renovation of said colonial and helped catapult the design business she previously described as a hobby into a full-time enterprise.

There’s more, too, and much more to come. Please drop me a line to say hi, introduce yourself, and tell me what you’d like to see in these pages. I’d love to hear from you as we continue Stamford magazine’s tradition of celebrating the people and places that
make our city so special.

Cheers to new beginnings!
