Here's an article I wrote as part of my monthly column for Gwangju News, an English-language magazine published in Gwangju, Republic of Korea. I lived in Gwangju from 2009 -- 2010, while teaching English to children and executives at Samsung Electronics.
As an alum of CFJ Paris, I was the first French producer of NBC's Meet the Press. I signed a Non-disclosure Agreement with built-in restraining orders against NBC staffers in December 2014 terminating my contract with NBC Universal. Recently, I was a National Press Foundation Fellow learning to report on opioids and addiction. Earlier this year, I joined SAJA. In 2013-14, I was also a National Press Foundation Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellow.
Born in Paris, France, I am an alum of Albany High School (NYS), Université de Paris, NYU, CFJ Paris, and Les Ateliers Varan. I am French, and a bilingual journalist based in the US with a Carte Vitale. That means, I am Spacestation NYC's, Brown Girls Doc Mafia's, Blood Money J-school (NYC)'s, the ivy league's, NABJ's, NAHJ 's and Jack & Jill Inc.'s WORST NIGHTMARE.
I am okay with this. I am an adult. I am still a professional journalist with unionizable skills.
I am bilingue anglais and a private citizen.
I am represented by Zeynep Sen at Wordlink Literary Agency.

FUN FACT: While living in my home town of Paris, I appeared in Mésrine: L'ennemi public n°1 with Vincent Cassel. Mr. Cassel was not courtois.
Voilà je l'ai dit.
