vemTMyArszgr3HyXEAZwKjgZK1lurg2PwS4B2AwzB8cCristina Velocci is a New York-based lifestyle journalist who has thrown herself off a bridge, dangled from a cliff by a rope, swam with sharks and otherwise submitted herself as a human guinea pig, all in the name of a good story.

When not moonlighting for Evel Knievel, she can be found overseeing daily operations at StyleCaster and SheKnows, where she is currently the Director of Editorial Operations. Cristina has written lifestyle stories on topics spanning travel, food, spirits, fashion, beauty, home decor and parenting for publications such as Family Circle, am New York, Metro and Latina, among others.

She has held staff positions at StyleBistroTime Out New York and erstwhile publishing company Doubledown Media, which produced niche luxury lifestyle titles Trader Monthly, Dealmaker, Private Air and Corporate Leader. Cristina has also made television appearances on Good Day New York and WPIX11, and speaks at industry events.

A proud Boston College alumna, she enjoys traveling, cooking little-people food, and reading one too many children’s books checked out from the library with her toddler son.
