Michael Tonello (b July 19) is a best-selling author and columnist for The Huffington Post. He does a weekly column on style, fashion, and trends on the "Living Now" page.
He is the co-founder of an advertising collaborative, TEAM Artist Representative, and spent many years in that industry. He then became a reseller of high-end luxury goods, finding his niche selling Hermès items, particularly the Birkin bag. HarperCollins has published his memoir (released April 22, 2008) called Bringing Home the Birkin. The book details the author's adventures as an eBay entrepreneur who travels all over the world, going to Hermes stores to procure "same day" Birkins for wealthy and famous clients who don't want to wait for the iconic purse. The book, now published in eleven languages, reached #3 on the Boston Globe Bestseller List (Hardcover Non-Fiction).
