Introducing... Vivian Morelli, Editor-At-Large

I am excited to present the newest member of the I Want To Be A Coppola editorial team — Vivian Morelli, our fabulous editor-at-large for Tokyo! Vivian will keep us current on all of the latest news from Japan about Sofia Coppola and her creations, including material typically found only in Japan; I especially look forward to reading her personal account of Milkfed. Because Vivian understands both Japanese and English and has a keen eye for all things Sofia, she is sure to bring an interesting voice to the site and I am honored to welcome her to IWTBAC! Domo arigato どうもありがとうVivian! Yōkoso ようこそ!

My name is Vivian and I'm delighted to join the team of IWTBAC as the Tokyo editor-at-large. I have been smitten with Sofia Coppola since I first saw Lost in Translation, this very movie made me fall in love with Japan, where I currently reside. I love everything about Ms. Coppola — her flawless style, her sophistication, her gorgeous cinematography, and her sense of aesthetics. I am presently living my own little Lost in Translation fantasy in Japan, soaking up the culture and writing about all the wonderful things I am experiencing here. I love cupcakes, films, bike rides, Sonic Youth, The Smiths, literature, and anything sparkly or bubbly.
