Hi! I'm Tracey Greenstein (stein is the German word for "stone"). I am a traveler, writer, photojournalist and director of content for a gemological foundation that specializes in the transparency and fair trade of fancy color diamonds.
As a freelance writer I have published articles for media brands Forbes.com, Forbes Travel Guide and Premier Traveler, among others. After working at Forbes Magazine as assistant to the publisher and subsequently a contributing travel writer, I circumnavigated the globe and reviewed hotels and destinations all over the world. Pursuing my love of fashion, I worked in the showrooms of Fendi, Alexander Wang and completed illustration coursework at the Fashion Institute of Technology as well as Parsons The New School for Design.
I received a B.A. in Philosophy with a focus on Values and Social Policy, a minor in Religious Studies and an interdisciplinary accreditation in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Colorado–Boulder and earned a Graduate Diamonds degree from the Gemological Institute of America in 2013.
