We believe San Francisco is the best city in the world. A place where it’s cool to wear 10 dollar shades with prada shoes, eat greasy burritos at 2am and make friends with total strangers. We believe that life is best enjoyed with a little mischief. An existence where every day is a celebration and every night is an adventure. That’s San Francisco. We are Asterisk.

As a copy editor, Emelie fixes grammar (solicited or not) full-time. With her cat, Comma, in tow, she recently moved to SF from SoCal in search of better food, more coffee, and a cute home with her even cuter fiancée, who manages to deal with Emelie's many neuroses in remarkable stride..

Fashion writer, editor, and stylist, Dawn immerses herself in fashion, design, art, and culture daily by scoping out the latest trends, runway shows, and events to interview new up-and-coming designers. When not uncovering the latest and greatest unknown fashionistas, she can usually be found feeling the burn at the gym, practicing yoga and pilates, wandering the local open-air markets, or reading in the most hidden corner of her favorite neighborhood cafe.
Much to the chagrin of her Jewish parents, who thought a Berkeley degree would surely produce a doctor or lawyer, Chloe Roth is a Bay Area musician and journalist. Singing for quarters and writing for pennies, she can often be found interviewing her idols and, bending the rules of journalistic integrity, slipping them one of her CDs. She’s inspired by the details in music, art..
Chase is always in search of new ways to explore and utilize his creative upbringing and education. Print making, carpentry, and design are his trade, but people are his passion. He can be found in any part of the city on any given day geeking out on city life.
