I am a writer and editor based in New York. I am passionate about books, conservation, animals and traveling the globe. I am fortunate enough to combine all of them in my work. When I am not reading or glued to my macbook, I am outdoors with my adopted dog, organizing volunteer events, exploring the city with my friends or planning my next adventure. I believe in making the best of the time we have on this planet.
My work has appeared in the New York Times, Salon, GQ, Yahoo!, MSN, Time Out and Yourtango among others. I write about animal rescue, culture, conservation, pets and eco and adventure travel. For the past two years, I wrote a weekly column on NBC’s Petside.com with a focus on pets and animal organizations around the world. I’ve edited and written Jeff Corwin Connect’s ebook, Jeff’s Explorer Series: Sharks.Email: Lavanyasun@gmail.com Phone: 516-491-8899
