In 2009, Jennifer created the award-winning blog “Dividing My Time: Finding The Funnier Side of Life in Russia,” which highlights humorous and quirky aspects of her life as an expatriate in Russia, her cross-cultural marriage and offers up very digestible doses of Russian history, culture, politics, literature and her own wry observations of daily life in the world’s largest country. In 2011, Dividing My Time was re-christened “Russia Lite” and launched with a new visual design. In 2011, Jennifer parlayed her passion for running great food to ground in Moscow in The Moscovore, an English-language site dedicated to gathering cooking resources, news, and recipes together in one place. Jennifer is a regular contributor to The Voice of Russia, BBC Russia Service, and is the Cooking and Humor columnist for “Russia Beyond The Headlines:” a monthly color supplement to The Washington Post, The Daily Telegraph, Le Figaro, El Pais, La Repubblica, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and The Times of India. She has contributed pieces to online forums such as expat+Harem and Powder Room Graffitti. Jennifer was born in Oklahoma City, and raised and educated in New England and the United Kingdom. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Russian Area Studies from Columbia University in 1989. Jennifer’s professional life featured a decade and a half in the Travel & Tourism industry in numerous roles: as a tour manager, tour guide, shore excursion manager, program developer, hotel sales and marketing executive, customer service manager, and corporate sales director. She also served as Head of External Relations with United Financial Group (UFG) a major Russian investment bank from 2003 – 2006 through its strategic sale to Deutsche Bank. Since 2006, Jennifer has pursued writing and photography on a full time basis. She researches, writes, and speaks on a wide range of topics including Russian history, social history, culture, current events, cuisine, art and architecture; the Romanov dynasty, cooking, culinary history, European Royalty from 1837-1918, travel, and personal finance. She is currently at work on her first book. You can follow Jennifer on Facebook and Twitter, or send an e-mail. Jennifer and her husband and daughter divide their time between homes in Moscow, Russia and Northampton, Massachusetts.
