Lauren Comiteau writer
Lauren Comiteau is a journalist, writer and native New Yorker who moved across the pond from New Amsterdam to Old a couple of decades ago and hasn’t looked back. She’s covered the Netherlands for TIME magazine, CBS, BBC, The Chicago Tribune, The Daily Beast and others. The former deputy editor of Time Out Amsterdam and “Domestic Blitz” columnist lives in Amsterdam with her two daughters and their Jack Russell (who often become fodder for her columns), and she writes for the city’s official publications on everything from shared mobility to the Dutch obsession with “threes.” Her podcast, Mokumista, explores the culture, politics and history of Amsterdam’s food scene. She’s also written an award-winning screenplay that is still searching for a producer.
