OTS is the brainchild of Editor In Chief, Andreas Abellana, and Editorial Director, Kristin Corpuz, a powerhouse duo with years of experience in the editorial, fashion, beauty, and travel realms. They are beauty lovers and frequent travelers ready to bring you all of the content that you need to build the Instagram feed of your dreams.
Meet Our Editor In Chief, Andreas Abellana
Andreas is the Editor In Chief of Off The Shelf. He is the Creative Director at BLAQ Pty Ltd., which currently houses #OTSco sister brands BLAQ and Generation Clay™. Backing an overall 9 years’ worth of experience within the fashion and beauty industries, his vision to launch an online editorial platform came to life in 2019. A true Aquarian-visionary and maker of brands, Andreas has worked for Australian brands Stylerunner and Tuchuzy to creatively elevate a brand’s DNA. He loves traveling and takes any opportunity he can to hop on a plane — he’s noted Dubai and Los Angeles as his two favorite cities in the world. He’s obsessed with his pup-niece Kaia Thorpe and any adidas Originals. Stay on his radar via Instagram @andreasabellana.
Meet Our Editorial Director, Kristin Corpuz
Kristin is the Editorial Director of Off The Shelf. She is a musician and editorial writer from Tampa, FL — now splitting her time between Los Angeles and New York City — and is a proud graduate of Berklee College of Music. She currently works as a Lifestyle Staff Writer for Elite Daily. You can also read her work in a variety of other publications, including Teen Vogue, Bustle, Glamour, Billboard, Allure, Elle, HelloGiggles, Business Insider, and more. Kristin previously worked in the charts department at Billboard, on the social media team at INSIDER, and as a music business associate for The Webman Group, a music publishing company based in New York City. She loves jetsetting around the globe, Corski puppies (though she doesn’t have one yet), and a perfect pinky-brown nude lipstick. Keep in touch on Instagram @kristincorpuz_.
Meet Our Contributing Fashion Editor, Bella Gerard
Bella is the Contributing Fashion Editor of Off The Shelf. She is a New York City-based writer and content creator that hails from the beaches of New Jersey — but no Jersey Shore jokes, please. In addition to scoping out beauty trends for OTS readers, Bella also writes beauty and style pieces for Elite Daily, and creates lookbooks and product roundups on her blog, La Bella Vita. When she isn’t busy tackling beauty and fashion in the digital age, her hobbies include creating (and eating) charcuterie boards, writing spoken word poetry, shopping in SoHo, taking photographs, and sitting around large tables drinking wine and talking trash with her big Italian family. To see all the aforementioned and more, follow her on Instagram @bellagerard.
