About Roberta...

Hi! I live in beautiful New Orleans, Louisiana. I am a former journalist, and now work as a copywriter, photographer and filmmaker. I like reading, music, dancing, chess, travel, and playing the ukulele. I have a German Shepherd dog named Goldie (@YourDailyGoldie on TikTok and IG), and a tuxedo cat named Tiny.

I am happy to receive ANY postcard, but my absolute favorites are recipe cards - I LOVE them, and enjoy trying out the foods on the cards!

Other themes I collect are:
Local Festivals/Holidays, Especially Carnival
Boba Tea
Fiat 500 or Volkswagen Cars
Shokugeki no Soma or Kakegurui Anime/Manga
Surva Festival (Bulgaria)
Krampus (Austria or other country that observes this custom)

I also love weird, strange or unusual cards - photo or illustration. But again, ANY card is welcome.

If you don't know what to write, please tell me about a cool band from your city or country. I like all kinds of music and love learning about your local music scene. If you're into music, I'm happy to turn you on to New Orleans music. We're known for it - and not just jazz!

I have created a series of limited-edition postcards from photos I have taken in and around New Orleans. If you want a card you will not receive from anyone else, please message me - I love to do Direct Swaps. Please note that I take a break from these swaps from July-October because of hurricane season and the unreliability of the mail when there is a storm. I will resume swaps again in the autum.

Happy Postcrossing!

P.S. If you have sent me a card, and I have not registered it within 50-60 days, please PM me. During the pandemic (and after a major hurricane in late August), cards are taking a very long time to reach my mailbox - even from countries that formerly took 7-10 days to travel. Something very strange is happening with the mail, but the cards usually DO arrive eventually, often in huge batches. No cards for weeks, and suddenly - 30 cards at once. It's crazy!

P.P.S. I generally keep politics out of postcrossing, but if anyone wants or needs to hear a thoughtful, sane, educated American's perspective, I'm happy to share it with you.
