About

Hi, I'm Lyndsey Matthews. I'm a writer, editor, photographer, and self-taught baker who lives in New York. I am currently the destination news editor at AFAR, and am also available for freelance writing and editing work. If you ask nicely, I may also bake you a cake.

Previously, I was part of the digital editorial teams at Hearst Digital Media's centralized news desk, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Travel + Leisure. 

I moved to New York from the San Francisco Bay Area in 2005 to attend NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. During my years at NYU, I interned at The New York Times Syndicate, SPIN magazine, and CMJ. I also was a photo editor and staff writer for The Prague Wanderer during my semester abroad.
