About the Author:
Elias Weiss Friedman grew up near Philadelphia, in a big, loud family of brothers, sisters, cousins, and dogs. After graduating from Boston University in 2010, he moved to New York and held a job at a major brand strategy agency for two years. But after a round of layoffs, he wanted something more authentic and creative to take on. Inspired by his circle of friends in New York City's startup culture, he decided to combine the two things he has loved since childhood: photography and dogs. Friedman created TheDogist.com in 2013; the wildly successful blog and Instagram feed now boast more than a million followers.
