Melanie – Downtown

Hi hi. My name is Melanie. I grew up in Los Angeles surrounded by dogs—we always had at least two running around my childhood home, and I spent a lot of time walking them by the water. Those are certainly some of my fondest memories from the west coast. I really miss those pups and look forward to seeing all five of them when I visit my family during the year.

I’m a writer, which means I can work from mostly anywhere, which also means I’m often called on by friends to watch their animals when they are out of the city. I love animals so much, and I love seeing New York through the eyes of a pup. After spending hours tuned into my laptop, there are few better feelings than exploring a neighborhood with a new little friend.
