It was during her junior year abroad at the American University of Paris that Amy's infatuation with the City of Light blossomed into true love. But when she finished her degree at Babson College, it was to San Francisco that she moved. There, she started a career in advertising at J. Walter Thompson and Foote, Cone & Belding, working on accounts such as Levi's, Amazon and the YMCA.

Along the way, her interest in the editorial world evolved into a second career and a move to New York brought her closer to home --- and Madison Avenue. While her copywriting portfolio expanded to include Redken, BMW and Dove, her food and travel writing brought her to Sydney, Dublin, the Caucasus mountains and the Connecticut coastline.

In 2008, fate or luck came her way with an offer to work on Louis Vuitton's digital advertising in the Paris office of Ogilvy & Mather. With a full-blown éclair addiction and an imaginary closet filled with Marc Jacob's best, Amy eagerly accepted the job and spent 2009 and 2010 eating up Paris.

Now back in New York City, Amy is the author of PARIS, MY SWEET: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate). She continues working in advertising and moonlighting as a food and travel writer.
