I am a long-time journalist and editor. My full-time job is editor for a restaurant website, so if I'm not writing, I'm eating. If I'm not eating, I'm writing. It is absolutely a dream job. Prior to that, I spent 20 years writing for hundreds of magazines and newspapers, back when it was mostly print. I have covered various beats including book critic, music critic, tech, food, celebrity columnist and beauty, fashion and lifestyle.
I am also a social media expert and influencer. In 2012, my LinkedIn profile was one of the top 5% most viewed. I wrote tech columns for AllTwitter, AdWeek, PcWorld and MacWorld. I have created winning social media campaigns for an ad agency, many restaurants and a worldwide software firm. I have designed websites for a renowned LA hairstylist, an award-winning novelist and many others.
I also spend time interviewing a lot of celebrities.
Carefully curated beauty, fashion + lifestyle products selected by influencer Stephanie Dickison. Shop at home no matter what time of day.
the knack debuted on August 20, 2006, back when there wasn't a lot of coverage on products outside big brand names. It's about what's new and what's hot and features products and producers you may not have heard of. I cover mainly beauty, fashion and lifestyle, but really there's a bit of everything. And it's all carefully chosen - I will not write about just anything.
