  Shana Ting Lipton
 
Professional/Personal Overview
  I've written for print + online publications like Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Robb Report, Wired, LA Times, British Airways High Life, Details, Salon, Glamour and Delta Airlines' Sky.

Based in London, I'm often in my native LA + telecommute for feature assignments, editing gigs and custom publishing projects (I've worked with branded content clients like Playboy custom publishing, Blackbook, Intermix and Thalys high speed European trains).

I have experience assigning, editing and producing features on a range of topics: art, design, culture, business, law, travel, tech, food, politics. The areas I'm most passionate about are tech, lifestyle and travel.

My rolodex of top tier media professionals from LA to New York, London to Amsterdam enables me tap into the appropriate resources to produce engaging and discriminating feature articles, and smart and sticky bespoke brand-targeted content.
