Photography, Content Creation, & Social Media Management
Graduated with a Bachelor of Science in marketing and advertising, Dara is a digital media sales and marketing professional with a background in publishing. She has also been running this blog in NYC, reviewing restaurants and food-centric events since 2008, as well as creating content for @skinnypignyc, where she is a verified “influencer” and has over 92,000 Instagram followers. Influencer is in quotes because she hates that term. That said, taking all of these skills into consideration, Dara works as a photographer and social media consultant for many public relations companies and restaurants across Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
Dara loves to cook and has been doing so since she was a kid. Her Instagram and Pinterest following exceeds over 130,000 combined, and she’s also a brand ambassador for FreshDirect, creating recipe content weekly. She takes a creative approach without being overly complex, and is always looking for new products and brands to work with. Some of the brands she has created recipes for include Chobani, Thrillist, Time Inc, and more.
Dara has written for numerous food publications and is a contributing writer for Thrillist (recipes), Food Network’s FN Dish, Bravo, Playboy, and has been quoted and/or featured on sites like Thrillist, Tasting Table, CBS, ABC, Zagat, and more. Click the Portfolio & Press tab for clips and articles.
