The ladies behind the newsletter

Michelle Goldchain

Born in D.C. and raised in NoVA, Michelle is journalist who focuses on housing and development in Washington, D.C. She loves to share beautiful photos of the District's architecture on her Instagram. She also has a background in art and photography.

On a typical weekend, you can expect her laughing at a comedy open mic, chilling at a food or beer festival, or simply at home binge-watching TV shows too quirky for typical consumption.

Kim Stiens

Kim is the founder and CEO of ranavain, a professional development and recruiting firm. She's an operations, HR, and administrative pro who holds torches for startups, career coaching, and flattening hierarchies.

In the past, she’s done operations, hiring, culture-building and writing work in media, drug policy and nonprofit management organizations.

You can usually find her watching Polygon and Outside Xbox videos on YouTube, painting, or getting up to shenanigans at weird downtown clubs.
