  • She was editor of her high school newspaper's Arts & Entertainment section, The Stuyvesant Spectator, which was sponsored by The New York Times.
  • She has experience handling celebrity and public figure "culture" from both sides of the aisle -- as both a journalist and former public relations specialist.
  • Lillian is witty and articulate, or so say her Instagram followers!


As an Arts & Entertainment editor for her New York Times-sponsored high school newspaper The Spectator, Lillian covered (and edited other writers') red carpet interviews and press conferences at the TriBeCa Film Festival for three years in a row. Lucky to have interviewed and profiled the likes of Snoop Dogg, Tim Robbins, and Maggie Gyllenhaal at such a young age, she parlayed that experience for several years after college into a stint on the other side of the press -- writing news releases for companies and accruing media contacts for (namely, fashion) brands.


Lillian's Advertising and Marketing Communications degree taught her how to craft press releases for important fashion brands and designers who are sold at prestigious retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York. It also honed her ability to get to the appropriate angles and context for a story.
