My love for France began in school when I attended my first French class with Mrs. Leschock. It was she who not only introduced me to the French language but also the French culture through films like Manon des Sources and Jean de Florette.
Paris the place I feel most at home and for many years, I was going back and forth to Paris every six months. Then I decided in 2014 that I wanted to move to Paris for three months and made my dream a reality. While at times difficult, it was a life changing experiences that improved grasp on the language and life in the City of Light. I moved back to Paris again for a month in the spring of 2022 to celebrate my birthday with my friends and just spent two weeks in Paris over Thanksgiving 2022.
I’m not someone who’s twirling in front of monuments or using Paris as a backdrop to fashion photos. I have French friends so I always make sure I’m experiencing the real Paris and not tourist Paris.
I’m also working on two books that will be curated for sophisticated travelers who want an elevated and elegant travel experience in Paris based on all my favorite off-the-radar places.
