About the Author

About the Author of The Guggenheim File | A Jewish Historical Book & AutobiographySylvia Griffiths was born and raised (hell) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She lives with her partner of over 10 years and their 2 morkie dogs in the borough of Queens, in New York. The author is passionate about 4 things: family, French film, futebol, and farofa. She adores her mother and sister—and like The Three Musketeers they live by the motto “All for one, and one for all”.

Raised in a multicultural environment, Sylvia speaks English and Portuguese fluently, has a working knowledge of Spanish, and knows a bit of French and German. She studied Humanities and did coursework in business administration in Rio. In 1981, she began working for a Brazilian national television network and print publisher. For a while she shuttled between New York and London, where she led a news broadcast team. In 1985, Sylvia resettled in New York and started her career in the marketing communications services and management.

Sylvia [Guggenheim] Griffiths: Author of The Guggenheim FileSylvia is a fan of the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) and loyally roots for her native Brazil (she likes to emphasize that in second place she roots equally for both the USA and England).
