Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jennifer relocated to Istanbul in early 2008 after falling hard for the city’s chaotic energy. An environmentally and socially minded journalist with a penchant for art, food, photography, running, and travel, her writing has appeared in The Christian Science Monitor, The National, Salon, Time Out Istanbul, and Wired, among other print and online publications. When not hard at work, you’ll often find her wandering the city’s streets, taking in a gallery opening, or socialising with friends at one of her favorite Beyoğlu bars. Istanbul_JenniferHattam_02_app
