Shanel is a NYC native with a penchant for all things art and pop culture. She recently moved back to the Big Apple after living in Miami for nine years. New York City and Miami, both melting pot of various cultures, have heavily influenced Shanel’s deep appreciation of the arts, culture, travel and food. In her spare time, you can catch her singing and listening to the music she loves the most, which is pretty much everything—It all depends on the mood.

When she isn’t blaring golden oldies or belting out lyrics from her favorite artists, Shanel is writing for Storychick, working as a freelance publicist or working on her recently launched self-titled blog Her blog serves as an outlet to introduce the world to dope content and the not so norm. Be sure to check out her blog and explore the avant garde, breaking news and oh so taboo.
