Fluent not just in two languages, but two cultures

Raised in Los Angeles and Washington by anglophone parents, I discovered the French language and culture in school, and these quickly became my passion. For ten years I split my time between Paris and Chicago, before finally settling in Marseille in 2015. Steeped in two languages and two cultures, I seek out projects that allow me to make connections between my native and adoptive homes.
