A writer and editor by training, Kim spent 15 years in NYC working at HBO and FORTUNE magazine, as well as freelancing for SELF, Elle Decor and Metropolitan Home, before starting her own design and event styling company. She has written lifestyle and travel pieces for Celebrity Living, Glamour, and Ritz-Carlton magazines. Seven years ago, she moved from the city to the sea…the Arabian Gulf, that is. Kim lives in Abu Dhabi with her husband and son, and spends her summers in the Hamptons and Italy.  Sister to KDH founder Kelli Delaney, Kim contributes lifestyle and travel stories from here and abroad.  Kim shares, “We always look forward to coming back to the Hamptons for the beautiful beaches, restaurants, shopping and morning drives to Round Swamp for warm blueberry muffins.”

Kim graduated from Tufts University, and has a master’s degree from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism.  Follow her on Instagram: kimhopkins
