Veronica McCarthy, Managing Editor
Where are you from?
Los Angeles, California.
Do you have a nickname?
Yes, all of them. Vero, Vern, Ronnie, Ron, Veroni, V. Basically the only person who calls me Veronica is my mother. She is the one who named me so she’s partial to the full thing.
What’s your sign?
Scorpio and way too proud of it.
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Will (probably) die laughing.
Describe what you do at Atelier Doré in one sentence.
Words! All the words! Pia, Vanessa, and Tori handle visuals and then they just yell out “WORDS! BRING IN THE WORDS!” And then I click clack away on my computer with white noise streaming through my headphones so I don’t start typing the conversation I’m hearing two desks over. That is definitely not one sentence but it is a lot words! Can’t stop, won’t stop with the words!
Ideal weekend includes…
Unlimited funds to do whatever the hell I want.
Very much depends on my mood, but I drink my martinis up with twist.
Do you have a secret talent?
I do not. But on that note, can someone please help me locate the Oscar Wilde quote that goes something like, “the worst thing one can do is be good at more than one thing.” Unless I’m misremembering things and I just brilliantly penned that. In which case please put it on my epitaph.
Craziest thing you’ve ever done?
When I was twenty-three I bought a one way ticket to Amsterdam and swapped apartments with a complete stranger on Craigslist so I could be alone and write abroad for four months.
Describe your style in 3 words:
Afraid of color.
Favorite place you’ve ever been?
My bed on a Sunday morning.
Advice to your teenage self?
Don’t be afraid to be funny and take up space.
One thing you can’t live without?
A sense of humor.
