The New Tourist, coming June 18

"Many travel books tell you where to go. This one tells you how to go. Deeply researched and engagingly written, The New Tourist will change the way you think about travel."

— Eric Weiner, New York Times bestselling author of The Geography of Bliss

About Me

I'm an American journalist based in France. A regular contributor to The New York Times, I've reported from more than a dozen countries, writing for publications like The Guardian, the BBC, and The Washington Post, among many others. My reporting has covered multilateral trade negotiations, humanitarian crises, economic development, and, for the past five years, the tourism industry. My travel journalism has been recognized by The Society of American Travel Writers and the North American Travel Journalists Association. A native of Chapel Hill, NC and a graduate of Williams College and Duke University, I have lived in five countries since I left the United States in 2008.
