I'm a journalist, writer and editor. I'm a director and senior editor-at-large at LinkedIn, based in London. I write about global professionals and the world of work, pen a column called The Last Globalist, lead data journalism and other long-term projects. I recently cycled out of management to recharge my creativity after building and leading a team of 25 LinkedIn editors on four continents. Editors at LinkedIn work to give our members the news and views they need to stay informed, advance their careers and engage in smart conversations on the platform. It's writing, editing, curating, cultivating, building products, halfway between tech and media. 100% journalism, just not the kind you’re used to.

Formerly a journalist at Le Figaro, The New York Times International Weekly, The Cambodia Daily, The Santa Cruz Sentinel and The Columbia Missourian. Grateful Missouri School of Journalism graduate, class of '08.

As an expat most of my adult life, I feel at home everywhere and nowhere. Places I've called home include Montclair, New Jersey; Columbia, Missouri; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Sydney, Australia; Paris and many other parts of my native France. I proudly carry a European passport and carry other countries in my heart (and in my unplaceable accent). For the full story of my career, check me out on LinkedIn
