GLOOBLES FRIEND: Leah Goudsmit in Blog

get to know us

You may already know gloobles friend Judith Goudsmit, but we recommend you also get to know her sister Leah. Did we mention she is also married to our illustrator? Talk about a gloobles clan! This talented video editor is an obsessive foodie who really knows how to do her research, a skill that came in handy studying film at Brandeis. Because she's been living in New York with Judith since she was 19, she can certainly shed some light on the best spots from Brooklyn to Manhattan & everywhere in between.
