Roslyn knows a thing or two about Cape Town. Born and raised there, she received her undergraduate and masters degrees in English from the University of Cape Town. She left for a two-year stint in the U.K. (where she studied for her doctorate at the University of York), before moving on to Paris, where she wrote mostly about dance. Seven years later, she relocated to New York, where she continued to cover the world of dance and also worked as a freelance editor at Saveur, House & Garden and Elle, among other publications. From 2004 through 2006, she was the features editor at House Beautiful. Currently, Roslyn is a dance reviewer for the New York Times and also writes about travel and food. She lives in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, with her South African husband and two daughters, but she hasn’t forgotten her hometown and makes an effort to return to Cape Town as much as possible.
