From Paris to Nice with Adrian Leeds
- This event has passed.
Learn how Adrian fell in love with Paris, then fell in love with Nice and how she’s brought the North American community together in both special French cities!
Adrian Leeds was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and spent a year on a kibbutz in Israel before settling into family life and building her career—first in Knoxville, Tennessee, then in Los Angeles, California before moving to France. She came with more than 21 years of experience in marketing and public relations—first with Levi Strauss & Company, then with television station promotion, broadcast sales, media buying, and ultimately with her own firm marketing and public relations firm. In 1994, she moved to Paris with her family for a one-year “sabbatical”…and never left.
In her need to survive in the City of Light as a single mother, Adrian created a variety of businesses devoted to assisting other expatriates in their quest to fulfill their dream to live in France. She wrote and published the first online Paris restaurant guide in 1996, Adrian Leeds’ Top 100 Cheap Insider Paris Restaurants (no longer available); created and ran Parler Parlor for 20 years, a French-English conversation group; and has filmed more than 50 episodes of HGTV’s House Hunters International since 2006!
On top of it all, Adrian has hosted dozens of conferences and workshops, as well as been featured as a speaker at dozens of others. On the second Tuesday of every month since 2003, Adrian has hosted a free “coffee gathering” in Paris at which there is always a speaker—a way for Adrian to give something back to the community she loves. And now, she’s doing it in Nice!
Adrian has a passion for writing and has been publishing three online publications a week since 2001!: Monday and Wednesday’s Nouvellettres®, and French Property Insider, which all have a large following. Subscribe here to dive into these popular publications.
