Michelle Khouri practically popped out of the womb singing show tunes. This gregarious bundle of endless enthusiasm has always been a performer at heart. In elementary school, she began what would turn into a decade of theatrical study. During that time, she learned to read music while devouring written works by literary giants.
Eventually, Michelle’s interests in arts and culture blossomed into a career. She is a passionate arts and culture writer and speaker, on the board of directors of Living Walls: A City Speaks, and a staple in Atlanta’s arts community. Michelle also owns Creative Powerhouse, a marketing consultancy that specializes in serving clients in the podcasting and arts and culture industries.
Michelle’s parents are at the foundation of her cultural interests. Her father was an old-school Argentinean who loved to cook food from around the world and would shed a tear over a sublime tango. Her mother, a global adventuress and native of Bogota, Colombia, would haul Michelle and her sister, on impromptu road trips and vacations abroad filled with art, history, and exciting experiences.
Michelle Khouri is a true citizen of the world. Her globalized perspective allows her to explore the world’s diverse art forms and artistic perspectives with comfort, openness and insatiable curiosity.
