Gigi Smith

Gigi Smith is a wanderlusting wife, mother, and businesswoman. She also happens to be the chief editor of DC Life Magazine, a publication specializing in cultural diversity for social change in the nation's capital. Like most residents in the DMV area, Gigi was once a transplant and decided to grow roots in the metropolitan DC area. She realized early on in high school that resources for cultural diversity will become necessary. Gigi's seen her fair share of neighborhood gentrification changes along with the rise and fall of real estate market prices. She's seen firsthand how DC area fashion bloggers have risen up into the primary market economy as the West Wing fashion era faded away. Gigi still craves to experience all the glory of her ancestral cuisine at Bad Saint, the crowning glory of Washington, DC as deemed by Bon Apetit magazine. And thanks to the arrival of Amazon, Gigi still believes that DC is the Silicon Valley of the East Coast.
