Thank you for visiting my blog! If you want to know a bit more about me, I’m a London-based travel blogger and speaker. I run an award-winning travel and lifestyle blog, A Lady in London, which I founded in 2007 and turned into a full-time job in 2010. It has taken me all over London and to 111 countries (and counting!). You can read the full story here.
Originally from San Francisco, I came to London after leaving a career in finance, during which I worked for Goldman Sachs and a hedge fund. Prior to that, I studied International Relations at Brown University and spent my summers working at the US Embassy in Paris and the US Mission to the EU in Brussels.
TRAVEL WRITING & PHOTOGRAPHY
My travel writing and recommendations have been featured on National Geographic Intelligent Travel, Lonely Planet, BA High Life, Time Out, Metro, Travel + Leisure, the Evening Standard, The Telegraph, The New York Times, and other leading travel and lifestyle publications.
My photography is regularly commissioned by Eater and has featured in print magazines like Conde Nast Traveler (US) and Ski+board, newspapers like the Financial Times, and exhibitions at institutions like the Leeds College of Art.
