Rita Bio

Rita is somewhat slothful in her endeavors. She hasn’t written for anyone other than herself, (She’s got some very strong opinions about yarn and pie, you should ask her sometime!), she only speaks one language, and you’ll never catch her scrubbing HTML. She does, however, really enjoy good food, music and friends, and is perfectly willing to write about and photograph any or all of those things, and more!

By day Rita is a dental hygienist, nights are spent knitting and dreaming up new things to do with fresh herbs and produce. She’s halfway through an 18 month tour of Seattle, Washington, after which she’ll be headed to Northern California.

About the Author

Greg dreamed up the idea for the Truly Network while living in Hawaii, which began with a single site called TrulyObscure. In 2010, when advertisers and readers were requesting coverage beyond the scope of that site, TrulyNet was launched, reaching a broader audience over a variety of niche sites. Formerly the head technology correspondent for the Des Moines Register at age 16, he has since lived and worked in five states and two countries, helping a list of organizations and companies that includes the United States Census Bureau, TripAdvisor, Events Photo Group, Berlitz, and Computer Geeks. He also served as the Content Strategy Manager for HearPlanet, a multi-platform app that has reached over a million users and has been featured in the New York Times, Hemispheres Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Fox Business News, PC Magazine, and even Apple’s own iPhone ads. Greg has written as a restaurant critic and feature journalist for a number of national and international publications, including City Weekend Magazine, Red Egg Magazine, the Newton Daily News, Capital Change Magazine, and an arm of China Daily, Beijing Weekend. In addition, he has served as a consulting editor for the Foreign Language Press of Beijing, as well as a writer and editor for the George Washington University Hatchet, the school newspaper of his alma mater. Originally from Iowa, Greg is currently living in the West Village of Manhattan.
