I’m a former TV producer, a risk-taker, an optimist, a big thinker, and a lover of everything sweet.  In 2012 I wrapped production on my last series and decided to pick up and move to Paris.  I spent half the year in pastry school at Ferrandi and a few months interning at a little tarte shop in the Marais.

Now I’m back in Boston, full of energy and ideas.  On these pages you’ll find stories and thoughts about my time in Paris, ideas for your next Parisian getaway, and little tips for how to enjoy “la vie parisienne” wherever your home may be.
