After conquering the cobblestone of Paris as a student, I wandered to the markets of Provence as a teacher. I never say no to a cheese plate or a bottle of rosé. I'm currently based in Washington, D.C., where I write about France on my blog and am on a constant search for the best baguette across the Atlantic. Follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Google +.
