Izzie Ramirez is an Editor living in New York City.
I’m an editor and freelance reporter based in New York City, specializing in climate, culture, food, and city news. Currently, I’m the managing editor for Spoon University, a food publication with more than 6 million monthly readers, we reach Gen Z right where they are.
I’ve also written for VICE, Bitch Media, Gen, Gothamist, Eater and the New York Times. Once upon a time, I was a social production associate at Good Morning America and an intern at Salon.
I graduated from New York University with a double majors in Honors Journalism and Global Liberal Studies (Politics, Rights and Development). I also am an alumna of Columbia’s rigorous mid-career science journalism program. Fun fact: I wrote three theses about climate change in a pandemic. Feel free to ask me about them. Or don’t. I’ll talk your ear off.
At NYU, I served the Editor-in-Chief of NYU Local, the most read on-campus news blog. My staff doggedly covered NYU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, often breaking news before the university itself did. During my tenure, views doubled from 160,000 to 410,000.
When I’m not writing, I’m probably making a fried egg or FaceTiming a friend.
