Hi there. I’m Laura Testino, currently the assistant site editor for This Old House and previously at the American Society of Magazine Editors, Atlanta magazine, and Tuscaloosa News.
Living in Manhattan is made more wonderful by pasta at Spaghetti Incident and hunting down the green parts of this island with my dog, Rita June. In addition to quality noodles, nature, and pups, I like to learn more and write about arts and education (together or separately), and what the heck to do with (about?) my Southern roots. After growing up in metro Atlanta, I attended The University of Alabama where I graduated summa cum laude with two Bachelor of Arts degrees: one in journalism and one in dance, with a minor in general business.
