"Work harder. Spend more time alone." — Joan Didion

Jill Krasny has spent the last decade writing for prominent publications such as The New York Times, The Economist's 1843 Magazine, The Financial Times, Domino and Inc Magazine. She's interviewed Pulitzer-winning author Adam Johnson about why he never bought a Ferrari, the man who turned Johnny Cash into a Forever stamp, and an Irish undertaker, who professed "the English don't hold a candle to the Irish for grieving." 

Prior to going freelance, Jill was a senior staff writer at Esquire, where she managed the site's book coverage and compiled monthly roundups of unmissable texts. At Inc. Magazine, she frequently profiled creative entrepreneurs like Reformation founder Yael Aflalo and Christina Tosi, the baker behind Momofoku Milk Bar.

A native Houstonian, Jill holds a bachelor degree in Communication from the University of Southern California and the distinction of not liking chocolate. She lives in New York with her husband and large Maine Coon cat, who is also from Texas.
