About me


My name is Robin. I am half Swedish, half American, and based in Paris. I work in advertising and I do some freelance writing, mainly about Paris but also about food, design, style, cultural events and travelling.

This blog is a mix of these different areas, and my effort to share the inside information on The City of Lights with all its hidden nooks and crannies along with tips on how to act (and feel!) like a local. You’re not likely to find information on Versailles and the Louvre here, but rather about which market has the best figs, where to catch some live jazz on a Monday and the correct way to order your coffee, along with snaps of daily life in Paris.

Some samples some freelance writing I’ve done can be found here. Feel free to contact me for any inquiries: robindenise@belowparisrooftops.com.
