Editor-in-Chief of Modern Luxury's MANHATTAN
Luxury Lifestyle Publisher
Cristina Cuomo is Editor-in-Chief of Modern Luxury’s MANHATTAN and BEACH Magazines.
I worked as an assistant filing papers, writing restaurant reviews, and doing printer runs at Hamptons magazine when I was a freshman at Cornell University. The magazine was under a single owner located on Main Street in Southampton and it was still printed on newspaper. I worked during my summers and three years later became the editor. By that point I was hooked on journalism.
We are focused on creating a second summer season of the beautiful BEACH – a literary, comedic take on the Hamptons basted in style and sophistication.
Define Success. What does Success mean to you?
Professional success means arriving at a point in your career when what seemed like work has grown into pleasure. Having been in publishing now for twenty years, I truly love writing and innovating on a tradition of producing magazines.
What traits do you believe contribute most in your becoming a great Editor-in-Chief?
Having a life. One needs to find inspiration in every day to get the most out of work. As the Sanskrit saying goes, Om mani padme hum – the jewel is in the lotus flower – find the beauty in every day. My children give me the confidence to do good – great is always something to strive for.
