Moving to Paris on a whim nine years ago changed my life. I’m an American transplant in the Dordogne (via California > Indiana > New York > Paris & the UK) So that gives me: A Midwestern work ethic with California style, and a touch of New York Drama and French flair.
I have a background in Studio Art & design, and a suuuper-practical degree in Musical theatre (jazz hands.) I started my career in weddings working for high-end caterers in some of NYC’s most exclusive venues, and then left a high-stress life in marketing to be a nanny in Paris for 6 months – but then I met a boy and never went home again.
I’m a perfectionist, bordering on OCD, interiors-obsessed, a sucker for details, occasionally distracted by shiny things and a tiny bit Extra. I pride myself on being able to DIY almost anything, and I sometimes communicate entirely in movie quotes

And weddings (duh.)
