Liz Gumbinner

Liz Gumbinner, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, is a born and bred New Yorker but without the accent. She has a successful side career as a creative director in the Prada-mandatory world of advertising, writes some parenting columns here and there, and is frequently seen on programs like NBC's TODAY Show, The Martha Stewart Show, ABC News, and CBS The Early Show discussing parenting trends, gear, technology and culture.

She's also a contributing editor to Blogher Style, and has contributed to a number of anthologies including Sleep is for the Weak, 42 Rules for Working Moms, See Mom Run and Kirtsy Takes a Bow: A Collection of Women's Online Favorites.

In 2009 Liz was named to the Nielsen "Power Mom 50" list of online influencers, and cited on Forbes.com's list of 10 Mother 'Hood Gurus. She's also been named to Forbes' list of 14 women to follow on Twitter, and the New York Post's list of 10 New Yorkers to follow on Twitter, along with Ruth Reichl and Lady Gaga. In 2011 she was awarded the prestigious AWNY Game-Changers Award.

Liz is equally at home in the boutiques of Fifth Avenue and the aisles of Target, but can most often be spotted around her Brooklyn neighborhood with the love of her life and their two daughters, Thalia and Sage.
