C.J. Hopkins

I am an American based in the suburbs of Paris. After obtaining a bachelors degree with a curriculum which encompassed many areas (focus mainly on psychology and film studies), I skipped back over the pond to France and have been living happily as an expat ever since. Writing primarily in the domains of travel, film and correspondent for international entertainment news, it is my recent experience witnessing my child growing in front of my eyes that gives me the greatest pleasure and inspiration.
An enthusiast for random facts, as well as an undying devotion for the New York Mets, you can contact me via e-mail: hopkins.courtney@gmail.com
