Claire Baker

After four years of studying French and Hispanic literature in Northern England, the natural move for Claire was to live and work in Paris and put her language skills to good use. She now tends more towards Facebook than Flaubert, and logistics than Latin American poetry, working in community management and awareness-raising for a disability not-for-profit whilst continuing to explore her adoptive city through its bike lanes, running circuits and artistic activities (often of a literally underground nature). Her Anglo-French upbringing and long-term links and loves with Mexico and Kenya means that there is usually food on her mind, and a cake or well-spiced on standby. Whilst her French heritage isn’t so obvious in her name, her pastry-fanaticism is; and her insistence on this fact is proof of her first love: puns.
