About the Writers
Nick Caruso is RISMedia’s Senior Editor and blog maestro. When this caffeine addict isn't writing about the amenities (and absurdities) of celebrity real estate, he’s obsessing over “Survivor,” scrounging to find new music, skiing, and writing on his own entertainment blog. It is his firm belief that bacon and hot sauce make everything better. Email any pitches or blog contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zoe Eisenberg is RISMedia's Associate Editor. When not searching the web for info on small-space living, Zoe can be found writing fiction and screenplays, cooking and drinking copious amounts of coffee. She dreams of one day owning her own 400-square-foot tree house.
Suzanne De Vita is RISMedia’s Online Associate Editor and social butterfly. Exceptionally vocal, she’s often found belting “The Star-Spangled Banner” or chanting Roll Tide! at her television. When she’s not being a busy blogger bee, she spends her time among barnyard animals, listening to The Temptations and devouring Cajun cuisine.
Paige Tepping is RISMedia’s Managing Editor whose interests include DIY crafts that ultimately clutter her home. Her recent foray into the world of couponing has left her overwhelmed, dashing her hopes of ever appearing on an episode of TLC’s “Extreme Couponing.” When she’s not busy coaxing Oliver the cat out of the fridge with turkey, Paige enjoys experimenting in the kitchen (aka following a recipe word for word), spending time outdoors and researching new watering holes.
Gabrielle van Welie RISMedia's editorial intern. She often refers to her living quarters as “the shoe box” or “the closet,” but admits it is a definite upgrade from undergrad dorms. She’s the token millennial, international, bilingual, and postgrad staff member. If perks come with said status, it remains to be seen. When Gabrielle is not complaining about her living arrangement, the life of the immigrant, or the patriarchy, she can be found downing a jar of Nutella and crying over "Mr. Robot."
