Boring but necessary: ***These opinions and everything I write about in my blog are mine and do not reflect on my employer in any way, shape or form.***
Hi, I’m Anne-Sophie, “Sophie” to English-speaking friends.
I’m kind of “globally aware,” or more like travel-obsessed really. I was born in France and moved to the US when I was eight. I’ve since grown up and fallen in love with traveling, learning new languages, etc. I speak French, English, Japanese and some Mandarin, and have been to 10+ countries including Switzerland, Bahrain, Turkey… Got any suggestions for my next trip? Thailand, Burma and Tibet sound really interesting!
To keep things short, I’m fascinated by the world and loving every second I get to spend discovering it.
I created this blog so friends and family could keep up with my adventures after I moved back to France, but it has evolved over the years and has now become a nice, funky little potpourri of my life: job search tips (I worked in recruiting 1-2 years), startups — keep an eye out for features and interviews! — and post tons of pictures of my adventures and shenanigans.
Quick background on why you’ll see a bunch of pix of France / why I moved back: I returned to France in September 2011 in order to spend more time with my ailing grandmother and reconnect with my French roots. I got lucky and was soon gainfully employed managing e-marketing and the U.S. product launch for Contract Live, a French SaaS start-up. Then, I took off for an amazing trip around Europe and Asia summer 2012 before moving back to sunny California. Now I’m back in the bay, busily helping San Francisco’s burgeoning tech startups take it to the next level.
In short, I’ve got tons of interests so expect to find posts on everything under the sun complemented by loads of pictures! (Had a “picture-a-day” project going for a while.)
