A native of the Metropolitan Washington area, Samantha Sault has covered the intersection of politics and culture for more than a decade.

Samantha began her career on the low rungs of the mastheads of policy journals, including The Weekly Standard, where she wrote about national politics as well as fashion and pop culture, covering events like the Republican National Convention in 2008 and President Obama’s inaugural balls in 2009. She has since covered international Fashion Weeks in New York, London, and Hong Kong.

She has a deep understanding of how Washington works, and how the city has evolved. For nearly three years, she wrote a weekly column for The Washington Times with her arts, culture, and nightlife picks for locals. In addition to writing, she has managed communications for the organization that lobbies on behalf of American fashion brands and retailers.

After graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a B.A. in Government & Politics, she moved to Dupont Circle, where she has lived for more than ten years. Today, she writes from Washington, D.C., Geneva, Switzerland, and airplanes in between.

Samantha Sault’s writing has appeared in publications including The Weekly Standard, The Washington Times, Washington Life, and IJR. Her work can be found at www.samanthasault.com.
