About Kylie in the City

Hello! I'm Kylie.

I live in New York City with my fiancé and our two dogs. I'm a radio personality, voiceover talent, videographer, podcast producer and creator. I'm nearly a year into my new Big Apple life but it hasn't quite clicked that I actually live here. I started this blog as a side project, to stay busy during idle hours between my day job and dog walks. More importantly maybe, I also started this blog as a way to remember my experience in New York City when the day comes that the call of Maine's rocky shores is too loud to ignore. But who knows, maybe I'll become a life-long New Yorker? I reserve the right to never leave, just don't tell my mom.
