A.J. Hanley



Hello! I'm an editor and writer based in New York City. My career began at Glamour magazine, where I worked in both the copy production and research departments. I later held positions at Good Housekeeping (associate beauty editor), Fitness (senior lifestyle editor), and Shape (executive editor). As a freelancer, I've done on-site editing for InStyle, HGTV Magazine, Redbook, Real Simple, Marie Claire, and Family Circle. My writing has been featured in a variety of national publications and websites, including Health, Self, Every Day With Rachael Ray, Prevention, New York Weddings, Pilates Style, and Refinery29. With a skill set that extends across platforms, I've immersed myself in branded content writing as well, penning monthly blog entries for Preservation & Creation, a new e-commerce site. I've also collaborated with Hearst Digital to create Honda Pilot-sponsored slide shows for six online magazines.
In 2012, my husband, Jim, and I began documenting a major home renovation on our blog, North Fork Project. When I'm not exercising my writing and DIY muscles, you can find me running along the West Side Highway, taking yoga and spin classes, or going for long walks with our standard poodle, Draper.
