Professional/Personal Overview
  Art, architecture, design, fashion, food, music, travel... From Finnish design to the Montreal music scene, I have covered culture and lifestyle for ten years.

I have written for international publications including WWD, The New York Times, MTV, Nowness, Four Seasons Magazine, Surface and Ralph Lauren Magazine; I have also worked as an editor at Canada's leading publications and consulted for major brands including Lancôme and Biotherm.

I hold two masters (MS, '05, Magazine Journalism; MA, '10, Arts Journalism) from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and a BA in Art History and International Development from McGill University ('04). I am fluent in English, French and Arabic.

I am also the author of Boho Beirut: a Guide to the Middle East's Most Sophisticated City and am currently working on my next book, Boho Brooklyn.
