Demeter Trieu's picture
First Name

Whether she's being dangerously fashionable or fashionably dangerous, Demeter is always turning heads wherever she goes (all to a soundtrack of NIN and Nina Simone). In addition to writing for MetroWize, she also reads books (and is still reeling from how amazing History of Love is), watches movies, wields Yelp like a deadly weapon, and works in Marketing at a custom design and fabrication firm.
