I’m Marissa. Writer, photographer, flâneuse during the week.
Francophile, serious fan of the Minions, and amateur baker on the weekends.
I love stories. Will you let me tell yours?
What I do…
I photograph the daydreamer, the traveler, and the creative, and with each photo, each story, I hope to capture their hearts, who they are, and who they will become. When they look back on these memories, I want them to see how much they are loved. I want them to know what it means to be joyful.
I write for them, too. My stories (journalistic and otherwise) search for and showcase fellow humans, wherever they may be in the world. I want my stories to inspire and empower; to delight and to touch. My beat is
More about me…
After a childhood in sunny California, I left for Boston—Boston University. NotBoston College. Following four months in the French mountain city of Grenoble, I’ve decided. France is the place for me.
When I am not dreaming about France, you can find me baking my way through the alphabet of French Pastry, reading (Pride and Prejudice, nine times, anyone?), and collecting Minion merchandise.
Think we’d be friends? Here are some random facts!
- I love Audrey Hepburn. Her style, grace, and humanitarian work are pillars to uphold. (And, Funny Face, anyone?)
- I speak French! There’s a piece of paper to prove it. (I use this skill to watch Peppa Pig en français…but I also listen to the news.)
- Fruity desserts over chocolate. Any day.
- I’m a modest art history nut. Arts museums are at the top of my list in any city I visit. (And in Boston, I love the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.)
Made it this far? I think we’re a great match!
