MASTHEAD AKA The Happy Crew That Runs This Joint
PJ Gach used to steal her mother's WWD from her briefcase when she came home from work. Hiding behind the couch in the living room, she devoured all the articles--even the ones that she didn't understand....Hey she started stealing the rag when she was 11.
Destined to enter the sciences (really), PJ got last minute cold feet and went to a college that she picked by sticking her finger on a page with her eyes closed to figure out what the hell she was going to do with her life. Somehow, she ended up majoring in Communications and having lots and lots of minors. PJ was an editor on her college newspaper.
She traveled around the country as a radio DJ. Then she started writing for a local newspaper, a few months later wrote an article for a regional paper, then a few months after that started writing for SPIN.com and RollingStone.com.
Tired of being chased backstage by musicians, PJ transitioned from a rock writer to a fashion/beauty editor who loves to cover food, cocktails and pets. She's written about urban gardening and Op Eds for the New York Post, had articles published in XOJane, the New York Observer, the Daily Mail and Teen Beat.
PJ has survived numerous NYFW; only was trampled on three times. It's no fun when you're as tall as Yoda.
Has been a co-host for Dressbarn's makeover web series, was a reality TV show contestant (she falls down real good), talent for Vidal Sassoon videos (she can speak!), and has written, produced and voiced over scripts.
She was featured in the May issue of The Ladies' Home Journal. PJ was also recently profiled in CareerGlider.com, and has just written her first back of the book blurb.
PJ Gach has been on the editorial staff of national sites. She also is a contributing writer for national sites, and yes, you can contact her to whip up an article or create custom content for your company/site. Follow PJ on Google+, Twitter @PJ_Gach_Editor , and Instagram,

He lived briefly in Stavanger, Norway, as a child where he learned to respect adults who made their own liquor and subsequently believed there were trolls living in the surrounding hills mostly because the adults were bigger than he was.
Steven has read and traveled extensively firmly agreeing that Diana Vreeland was right when she said, “The eye must travel.” In the process he dated a couple guys who thought a wandering eye was just as good as a traveling eye, developed his practice as a mixed media artist, visited some interesting places while reading good books and watching good films, and ate an inordinate amount of cheese.
His background in writing began in the form of journals hastily illustrated during family road trips because he thought he might need proof of these stories one day. Eventually he edited a small magazine, wrote an opinion column in his hometown newspaper, and while continuing his journalling also began to blog and develop some of his earlier ideas into a book that will either delight or frighten his family upon its publication.
Steven is based in New York City covering his interests in art, writing, fashion, film, and food in the city that sleeps almost as little as he does.
Feel free to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you have a product, production, venue, film, book, or event that his wry sense of what is lovely might want to cover. Follow Steven on Twitter @presumedtossed, Instagram @spmagstadt, or his website www.stevenpmagstadt.com. His site features his art and essays.
