Hello,

After nearly seven incredible years at Dwell, I have made the decision to move on to new challenges. I believe a fundamental change in the magazine’s mission and philosophy has occurred which I feel prevents me from doing my job keeping Dwell at the high level of quality we have so far achieved.

I am absolutely grateful for the tremendous opportunity I have had, and for my highly rewarding years here, and I wish everyone at Dwell all the best.

You can reach me and see what I’m up to by emailing me at [REDACTED].

All best regards,

Allison Arieff
