Here at Chrome City, we pride ourselves in having ultra-creative and inspiring homies throughout the Chicago area. Each week, the Chrome Chronicle (our news outlet) will share a little bit about these incredible people and why we are excited to feature them as our #ChromeHomie.
Let us introduce our Homie, Kelly.
Kelly Rizzo of Eat, Travel, Rock
Q: What is your role at Eat, Travel, Rock?
A: I am a food and music TV host/blogger/expert and travel addict. I produce my own web series Eat Travel Rock TV as well as do many other TV appearances, local and national, sharing my favorites in food and music.
Q: How did you end up in Chicago?
A: Born and raised here baby!!
Q: What is your favorite part about this city?
A: The beauty can’t be touched. To have a city this big and bustling with the most gorgeous skyline, RIGHT ON the most scenic lake front is unheard of. Plus the food is out of this world.
Q: How did you meet Alex?
A: We met through an amazing charity project called Avanse she was doing the PR for. I emceed the event, it was such an honor working with her AND the incredible Avanse organization.
Q: Who has the most influence on your career?
A: My mom… she is the career woman who has done it all. She had a successful modeling and broadcasting career for 15 years and then became the top Realtor in Chicago all while raising three girls and having a happy marriage.
Q: What is your creative process?
A: I’m a bit all over the place because I have SO much going on, traveling, TV, dining out every night… but I have ZERO fear, so when I get an idea, I just go for it. I don’t care who I have to talk to or who might “say no” to me. I just go for it and know that everything is a great learning experience.
Thanks for being a Chrome Homie, Kelly!
