Roslyn Costanzo

Writer & Content Specialist

About Me

I am a freelance writer and content developer specializing in fashion, food, and lifestyle. My PR background also means that I can write impactful media releases.
I’ve been blogging since 2012 under the moniker and have recently started a joint influencer project called where I create, write, and produce social content and videos about fashion, recipes, and the best places to visit in Hamilton and the GTA.
Most recently I have enjoyed working as the producer and researcher on a monthly parenting and youth development podcast called for Muskoka Woods.
My previous experience is largely in the art world, having been an art student (I completed my Masters degree in Art History with a Diploma in Curatorial studies), and I have been involved in many aspects of the art world from serving on the board of directors for an artist-run non-profit for almost ten years, to writing catalogue essays, conducting exhibition research, and curation.

Work Experience
