About Michael Kurcfeld

I'm an arts journalist and segment producer, who lives part-time in Paris. I've enjoyed renting my home out in the months that I'm abroad, meeting many interesting people. But of course I'm quite particular about who stays here because it's my personal sanctuary. Anyone into the arts, books, vintage furnishings... not to mention a nicely landscaped backyard with pool... will love it here.
