Hi! My name is Joy. I was born at home on the Upper West Side in NYC, and left the city 18 years later to attend Beloit College in the Midwest. After graduating with a creative writing degree, I moved back to Manhattan, where I answered the phone and filed papers for a candle company. Feeling cramped from the city, I picked up and headed for Cape Cod, where I adopted my dog, Juniper, learned to drive, and started 3 Chairs. I have written for Food52 (see my articles here), and I was an editorial intern for the lifestyle blog, A Cup of Jo. Thanks for stopping by!
