About Katie, miomia’s owner

While living in Washington, DC, Katie Chang began to consider making her life-long passion of into a career. The “metrosexual” was revealing his exfoliated face in urban centers around the world. Katie took notice, and decided the time had come to pursue her dream.

Katie then entered graduate school at Georgetown University, where she wrote her Master’s thesis on the emergent American male grooming trend. After graduating, she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to use her expertise and open up New York’s first truly unisex apothecary. Katie’s mission is to hunt down cutting-edge beauty and grooming products for men and women, brands with a special story that will inspire loyalty.

Katie also moonlights as a consultant and freelance writer. For The New York Times T Magazine blog, The Moment, Katie puts her passion for men’s grooming to work by covering what’s new and noteworthy. Check out her pieces by clicking here.
