Daniela Velasco González (creative director) and Adam Goldberg (editor in chief) are each highly talented creatives in their own right.
Together, they’re a creative force to be reckoned with.
Erika was living in Belgium and just returned home.

The gardener had said twice that he'd caught the groundhog, but he hadn't — and Allison just couldn't deal with it anymore (the groundhog for the 23rd time.Meanwhile, Adam desperately needed Allison's help writing a joke for a speech and making sure his shoes and belt didn't clash. We found that when we got all of these things out of the way in one sitting, we didn't have to nag each other throughout the week about them. Taking the time to schedule a regular, quiet, uninterrupted discussion to figure out who was doing what helped ease anxiety about household tasks and eliminated loose ends (like: Oh, wait, I thought were taking care of that groundhog).Relationships are constantly falling out of balance — you get overwhelmed because your partner isn't pitching in enough.
