Cambio Editors

Linda Friedman

Editor-in-Chief
Los Angeles, CA
Linda started her career at YM, opening hundreds of entries for the "Young & Modern Man" contest (a challenging assignment that exposed her to a high risk of paper cuts)! Today, she scrolls through thousands of entries for the "Perfect Selfie" contest as editor-in-chief of Cambio. In between, she kept up with the Kardashians for five years (that's a lot of breaking nails, er news) at E! Online and helped launch Teen People. Linda's on-the-job highlights include once spending 90 minutes in a Chateau Marmont bungalow interviewing Matthew McConaughey and crashing the Oscars after-party the year 'N Sync performed. Low point: Trying to get a quote from Robin Wright in the bathroom at House of Blues! Linda is on Team Taylor, and her TV crush is Desmond Harrington from Dexter. She aspires to score higher than 2 on Flappy Bird.

Vivian Tang

Editorial Assistant
Los Angeles, CA
Vivian started as a production intern at Cambio and after graduating from the University of California, Irvine in 2012, she joined the team as an editorial assistant. When she isn't binge watching Netflix, she enjoys writing and penning down questions for interviews on red carpets, movie premieres and junkets. Though a collector of vinyl records and an old soul at heart, Vivian has always been a pop culture junkie--whether it's music, television or films. She also likes to call herself an expert when it comes to all things Taylor Swift. And when she grows up, she wants to be a combination of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Kristen Wiig.

Jeanette Batur

Contributing Writer
Los Angeles, CA
After graduating summa cum laude from UCLA, Jeanette headed off to a top-tier law school, where she quickly realized she was spending way too much money to sit in class and read celebrity gossip. So, she did what any reasonable person would do, and decided to pursue that full-time instead. Fortunately, everything worked out. Now, Jeanette spends her work days researching NSFW stuff, which she still finds kind of ironic. When she's not "researching" celebrity sex tapes or other scandalous situations, Jeanette is scouring the internet for dog videos. Cute dogs, ugly dogs, big dogs, small dogs—she doesn’t discriminate. If it has four paws and a tail, she’ll watch it (at least once), so if you see something good, feel free to send it to her.

Cristina Gibson

Contributing Writer
New York City
Cristina was voted "Most Talkative" in 6th grade, 8th grade and 12th grade so it only made sense that she pursued a career in entertainment journalism, where you're actually encouraged to talk to famous strangers and ask personal questions. She graduated from Loyola Marymount University and worked at E! in LA and Life & Style magazine in NYC before Cambio, where she keeps up with the Kardashians, Jennifer Lawrence, Beyonce and Jay-Z. She lives in the East Village and really wonders why she hasn't run into Ryan Gosling yet.

Ashley Rose

Contributing Writer
Los Angeles, CA
Drake really nailed it when he said "started from the bottom"...Ashley sparked her celebrity-writing career as an intern for JSYK.com, which later transferred into the big ball of awesomeness we all know as Cambio today. It was back in her "go-get-me lunch" and "interview this no-namer" days that her Justin Bieber fever kicked in and slight obsession with Taylor Swift started too. Her first big celebrity interview was with Morgan Freeman (the actor, not the 'Teen Mom' guy) and her celebrity crush is Gavin DeGraw. When she's not obsessing over Dave Matthews' awesome musical talent or her love for the Pittsburgh Steelers, she's trying to figure out who T-Swift is dating or chasing fancy cars in Los Angeles because she thinks she saw the Biebs cruising with Selena Gomez. The coolest thing of all is that she gets paid to tell all of you about everything young Hollywood and country music. Swaggy.

Wendy Michaels

Contributing Writer
New York
Wendy has been a fan of entertainment news for as long as she can remember, so writing about pop culture and celebrities (following a brief career in marketing, that is) was a no-brainer. After covering the latest and greatest entertainment news for a variety of TV, movie and celeb blogs, she landed at Cambio, where she developed an addiction to One Direction buzz and solidified her status as a Lovatic. Wendy’s other loves include all things SNL and Johnny Depp.

Danielle Datu

Social Media Contributor
Los Angeles, CA
Before the Internet and social media took off, Danielle could be found in the magazine aisle of her local grocery store soaking up the pages of everything from "Tiger Beat" to "Rolling Stone." She was obsessed with all things entertainment, and even watched EVERY award show growing up no matter how boring everyone said they got each year. She later graduated from USC with a print journalism degree, and has since worked at MTV News, American Top 40 With Ryan Seacrest, Urban Bridgez, E! Online and the Style Network. Danielle lives for the rush of interviewing stars on red carpets for that all-important "get," and can be a little neurotic when it comes to real-time tweeting from Hollywood events. Currently, she stalks celebrity hashtags for Cambio--not that anyone needs to pay her to do it.
