My name is Dominique Lemoine and I’m a NYC-based writer and photographer.
Someone once told me I’m like a renaissance woman, committed to thrive across passions, abilities and platforms. I’m interested in all kinds of cultural expressions as well as immigrant issues in the United States. My life and my work revolve around food – whether it be making it or eating it -, literature, travelling, languages, photography (stills or in motion) and good soundbites.
Born in Colombia into a family with a French heritage, I am now pursuing a M.A. in Journalism at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism. Before that, I obtained a degree in Culinary Arts from the Escuela de Gastronomía Mariano Moreno and a B.A in Literature from the Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, my hometown.
I worked as an Arts and Culture reporter for El Espectador, Colombia’s second largest national newspaper, before deciding to start my own online food magazine, Revista Tentempié, which I still direct. Currently, I contribute regularly to El Espectador and Esquire Colombia. My work has also appeared in WAMC Northeast Public Radio and The New York Daily News, among others.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, projects or proposals! I’m a multimedia journalist and cultural traveler, open to any exciting opportunities that might come along.
