Colleen Costello


Colleen Costello until recently, has always lived in New York City, growing up in Queens and later moving to Brooklyn. She studied photography, got a cosmetology license, then graduated from St. John’s University, became a certified public accountant, and immediately began attending Fordham University’s grad school while working in tax at Deloitte. Always wandering, she’s usually had her watercolors, cameras, and tripod with her as she’s explored the world and drove throughout the U.S. She has been a long-time contributor at The Independent Traveler, a subsidiary of Trip Advisor, writing and moderating. An avid cinephile, Colleen has worked and volunteered at many NYC area film festivals, and recently took a university course on Alfred Hitchcock. She is thrilled and grateful to be living a dream at Photoville/UPI.
