About

MELISSA RAYWORTH

For nearly two decades, Melissa Rayworth has been exploring the building blocks of modern life -- the ways we design and organize our homes, how we interact with entertainment and pop culture in our marketing-saturated society, parenting, relationships and marriage, and much more -- as a writer for regional, national and global media outlets. She's also an experienced managing editor for print and online magazines.

That work continues, and has grown to include the launch of a private storytelling service called Breadcrumbs, which Melissa has created alongside her husband, writer Ted Anthony. (Visit breadcrumbstories.com to learn more.)

After three years living and working in southeast Asia, Melissa currently splits her time between Pittsburgh and New York.
