Twitter Spotlight: Meg Urbani

It took Bobby Long to make fashion photographer Meg Urbani and me in-person friends. We had already tweeted for a while, but when Bobby’s show at Joe’s Pub was announced, we coordinated and bought tickets.

I feel like I have known Meg a long time because we’ve had lots of fun seeing bands and drinking in bars together. Even now that we’ve been friends for a little while, I remain in awe of her photography. It’s crazy to me that I know someone so talented in that art form.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@MegUrbani: Has a sense of humor, not afraid to be dorky, doesn’t take himself too seriously, a bit of a nerd, oh and great hair and a great smile. Also being British doesn’t hurt. Just saying 🙂

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@MegUrbani: Driven

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@MegUrbani: They all have a great sense of humor, are great listeners, know that when we get together there will be no acting like ladies. There is a time & a place for that! They don’t judge me.

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@MegUrbani: I have a few different versions: Going on random adventures with friends while drinking some wine… it’s what I did when in Paris and it was amazing.

Also, laying in my new bed with a book and my puggle snuggling.

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@MegUrbani: A job where I would have to do the same thing everyday with no creative fulfillment.

OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character

@MegUrbani: Now this just isn’t fair! I have so many! And they always change, but the one that sticks with me.. I think I have to say Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars. He made me smile until my face hurt, then gutted me.

OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink

@MegUrbani: Java chip frap light (it’s my savior when I have migraines). A good draft beer. And I am going to have to say the duck & fig sausage from Rosamunde in Brooklyn. My mouth waters just thinking about it.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without


    1. Elliott my puggle
    2. My Camera
    3. Ipad/ computer
    4. KitchenAid mixer
    5. Books!!

Puggle love

OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)

@MegUrbani: I want to direct a hip hop music video. And photograph Rob Pattinson. Perhaps we can combine these two things? Best idea ever!

@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @floridagirlindc)

@MegUrbani: There are a lot of people who I love, and haven’t met yet but I am going to have to say @mroshimbo.

She is one of the first people I really started talking to on twitter and she has become my book buddy over the years, and a good friend. She has sent me some amazing gifts (but that’s not why I love her), including a kick ass drawing she made me for my birthday, which I have hanging up by my desk. We have been talking on twitter & FB since 2008ish I think? Hopefully one day we can meet!

@OneChicklette: What is your most under appreciated tweet? (this question came via @MikeKelton)

@MegUrbani: I tend to have a bad case of tweeting without thinking, so I say a whole bunch of things I probably shouldn’t, I like to keep things interesting. You would think having to type out a thought would filter me but nope. So I am going to have to say a lot of my tweets are underappreciated because I probably offend many.

OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant

@MegUrbani: What is your guilty pleasure? Just come on out with it!


OneChicklette: Random shout out

@MegUrbani: Person: Jenny Lewis, because I just love her, and she smiled at me in Brooklyn a few weeks ago and it was magical.

Some shameless self promo: check out my photograph website. Also If you want to see how non-glamorous and crazy photo shoots can be, follow me on Instagram.

Finally I want to give a shout out to West River Cycles, my best friend’s bike shop in Long Beach California. Check it out!
