Meet Your Curator
Our very own Jauretsi Saizarbitoria, Chief Curator over here at The Inside Source, was recently featured on Refinery 29, where they got inside the brain of our epic multi-tasker. Did you know that in addition to finding you the best in culture, arts, fashion, and design, Jauretsi hosts a radio show? Or that she’s also a documentary filmmaker? You’re going to have to read the rest for yourself. Until then, here’s an excerpt from Refinery 29.
Refinery 29: Tell us a bit about your career path — we sometimes get lost in all the details.
Jauretsi: “I was always a little diffuse in my career goals. I’ve let my passions guide me. I learned in later years that that’s an asset not a liability. Yeah, I threw parties in the mid ‘90s for Paper magazine, then Details back when it had the Soho loft (oh, those rooftop days!). By the time I made it to Jane magazine, I was its entertainment editor, booking celebrity covers. Jane Pratt was an awesome partner in crime and really knew how to put people together. After 10 years in print, I left the business to shoot a documentary in Cuba and reemerged in New York two years later to reinvent myself as a digital girl.”
