Cristina has written lifestyle stories on topics spanning travel, food, spirits, fashion, beauty and home decor for publications such as Family Circle, am New York, Metro and Latina, among others.
She has held staff positions at StyleBistro, Time Out New York and erstwhile publishing company Doubledown Media, which produced niche luxury lifestyle titles Trader Monthly, Dealmaker, Private Air and Corporate Leader.
