While I've spent the last decade in advertising, I originally trained to be a professional ballet dancer. I'm also the author of the blog and book, thxthxthx which was featured on the blogs of the New Yorker, Vogue and The Atlantic. When I'm not staring pensively into the middle distance at the Jardin de Tuileries, I'm working on a second book, as well as "gardening," which really means picking the fruits and vegetables my husband grows in our backyard.
