I was born and raised in Baltimore, majored in French and English literatures at Stanford University, and earned an MA at University in English at the University of California-Irvine. Afterward, I lived in Paris for two years, where I was the managing editor of a glossy, English language magazine about France. I returned to San Francisco, where I wrote for Travelocity, eventually lucking into my first gig authoring guides for Lonely Planet.
In 2008, I moved to Rio de Janeiro and lived there full-time for about five years. Now, I am back in New York City, but to keep things complicated, I have a tiny apartment in Buenos Aires. I am not sure which city is home.
