Melissa Kravitz is a writer, editor, reader and all-around really great person living in New York City.

She currently covers all aspects of food, dining, travel and lifestyle trends and the intersection of culture, business and politics in these areas. Melissa has written about everything from the way that food commercials have paved the way for LGBTQ representation in advertising, to the importance of sustainability in everyday home cooking to the evolution of New York City's oldest drag queen restaurant. She is passionate about LGBTQ issues, protecting our food systems and amplifying marginalized voices. Her reporting has taken her to Ireland, France, Italy, Canada, Alaska, Guatemala, Denmark, Upstate New York, Nantucket, the Bronx at the crack of dawn and many more inspiring destinations around the world. 

You can see her work on the Internet! And in magazines! And newspapers!
