About the Writers

Nick_91x131Nick 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 nick@rismedia.com.

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_91x131Suzanne 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_91x131Paige 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.

    Hi There,
    I hope you’re having a good week. I’m currently working with a home improvements website on a content piece which is trying to raise awareness of home energy efficiencies, looking at exactly what progress is being made according to the latest research.
    I found your blog and thought you’d be a great person to get in touch with given the content I’ve seen on your site. We think it might be something of interest to your readers.
    You can view the graphic here:
    We hope you love it enough to republish it on the site blog.rismedia.com, we’ve added some easy embed codes which you can just copy and paste in to add it on a page!

    All the Best,
