Sydney grew up outside of Philadelphia, went to college in Nashville, and then moved to New York City to be an art director at either a large advertising agency or a sweatshop. From what she’s told us, we’re still unclear. After four years of failing to convince herself that her Big Pharma clients were good people deep, deep down, she left the industry to launch The Infatuation in Philadelphia. Contrary to what you may expect, she does not have a strong opinion on cheesesteaks or Allen Iverson. She hopes these confessions don’t ruin her credibility with her Philly audience.
