For over a decade, Vanessa Pascale Rust has interviewed the hottest names in Hollywood (150+ in-person celebrity interviews and over 45 cover stories), including high-profile movie stars (Catherine Zeta-Jones), musicians (Harry Connick Jr.), comedians (Chris D'Elia), fashion designers (Christian Siriano), entrepreneurs (Daniel Boulud), television personalities (Sophia Bush)… for the covers of glossy magazines and interior features.
The University of Central Florida graduate obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in English / Creative Writing and is presently editor-in-chief of MIAMI LIVING Magazine.
Her affinity for the arts --film, writing, music-- began at 8 years old; she'd voraciously devour Sweet Valley and The Baby-Sitters Club books, The Big Bopper interviews, primetime TV and Blockbuster's latest releases. During this time, she also discovered her love for writing and would spend hours writing pages and pages of poetry and journaling.
Today, Vanessa is elated that she is able to interview people she admires and writes about entertainment, food, fashion, travel --her greatest passions. Her writing has been published in magazines across the nation: LA Direct, San Diego Magazine, Phoenix Magazine, MIAMI LIVING, on websites (website content, executive bios), and has helped sell multimillion-dollar real estate.
In December 2018, she launched, "Journey of a Passionate Writer," a lifestyle blog about her recent decision to become a “full-time writer" and her experiences as a celebrity interviewer, editor, writer of a luxury lifestyle publication.
Through the written word, Vanessa strives to inspire, entertain, and uncover the magic that lies in every story she tells.
