On the Trail of San Francisco Style

Our own Meghedi Nazarian, the online queen, has started a style blog called The Fashionphiles.

(She needs to come back to USF and check out some of the older faculty, who are a living museum of Sixties fashion.)

Leah Hitchings Has Come Home. Yahoo! (Bad Joke)

I'm currently working as an editor for Yahoo! News in Sunnyvale, running their front page breaking news coverage. I've been at Yahoo! for a little over a year now, and I haven't tired of the foosball tables and free lattes yet.

Before working for Yahoo! News I was working as a news producer for The New York Times. I also worked on front page news coverage for them and worked specifically with their Business desk.

Fellow USF alumna Shadi Rahimi worked at the Times while I was there, so there might have been a bit more San Francisco-centric coverage on the site while we were around...Previous to the Times I wrote for McGraw-Hill Business Magazines, interned for CBS News' "Sunday Morning Show,” and worked as a writer for States News Service in Washington, DC. It’s great to be back in SF!
