confessions of a modern mom

C’est moi

Hi. I’m Michal. I am a woman who lives in New York City (the greatest city in the world, except for Tel Aviv) with my husband and two daughters. I am a jack of many trades. During the day, I run a production design company with a wide range of projects. In the last few years, I have designed the green room for the Pope, I have transformed a huge Texas hotel ballroom into a sleek and modern NYC-style club for 2,000 guests, and I have been on TV as a trend expert in Christmas tree decorating. Yup, my job ROCKS!

I was born in Israel. Moved to New Jersey when I was eight, but don’t you dare call me a Jersey girl! My brother-in-law Mike can attest to how much I try to distance myself away from that title. I spent my childhood dancing, acting and competitively playing the piano. And getting good grades. That didn’t mean I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up (not that it’s been clarified much two decades later).

I have many hobbies. I have had many jobs. I get the 7 year itch every 3 years. It’s grrrrrrrreat! I watch TV, I shop (mainly for shoes), I eat, I art, I hoard, I love. There’s so much about me that I don’t even know how to write it down. So, stay tuned! You’ll get to know me soon enough…

I had my first kid in 2008 and it’s been a wild ride! Especially since number two came along in the summer of 2011. I’m enjoying every minute of them, my hubby and our life together. We are extremely lucky: Bella and Anya are great eaters, sleepers and socializers. Come on, hang out with us!
