Welcome! My name is Hannah Hart and I’m a twentysomething year old living in Brooklyn, NY. I was born in Western Massachusetts (oh hey 413) and lived there until I graduated High School and moved to Lewiston, Maine to attend Bates College. While at Bates I studied Spanish Literature and met some of my greatest friends on this planet. At school I needed a distraction from writing my Spanish thesis so I started Hart Beat as a side project. Almost four years later the blog is still going strong.
Now I have been living in Brooklyn for three years and over those years I have worked a number of jobs. I spent a year working at Artists & Fleas, worked for Brooklyn based DNA Footwear (and met Pedro there!), and now I currently work as Merchandising Manager for the lovely Food52.
For Hart Beat these last four years have meant different things. As a student it was a study distraction, at times the blog was a way to get over an ex, and when I first moved to the city it was an attempt to become the next New York blogger. Throughout everything the blog has been a way to update my friends and family (hi mom!) with what I’m thinking about and what I love at the moment.
The lovely part about Hart Beat is now I get to talk and share with more than just friends and family, I also get to write to you! So whoever you are right now, Hart Beat, I’m so happy to have you here and I can’t wait to see where the blog takes us next.
