I am an Italian-American writer and photographer with a penchant for la dolce vita and a severe case of wanderlust.
Originally born in Rome, I grew up moving around the globe and lived in the US, Peru, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Turkey before returning to Italy in 2010. After a lifetime away from my country of birth, I’ve been able to rediscover my Italian roots as an adult and have traveled extensively throughout the country’s many regions, spurred by a desire to understand it and come to terms with my identity. For the past seven years I have explored the country with a ravenous appetite, not only for its incredible food but for its longstanding cultural traditions, diverse panoramas and wealth of artistic treasures. I’ve been a traveler since birth so I’m happiest when I’m on the move exploring and growing through new experiences. I’ve traveled to over 30 countries and love nothing more than stepping outside my comfort zone to learn more about the world.
I am the author of The Hunt Rome (Gatehouse, 2016) and have been published in numerous print and digital publications, including The Independent, Culture Trip, LUXOS Magazine, Romeing and Spotted by Locals. For samples of my writing, please see my Published Clips.
I also work with a number of clients on social media strategy, content creation, copywriting and branding. Previously, I worked as a digital communications consultant for a number of international organizations in Rome, including the United Nations World Food Programme and the International Development Law Organization. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in Philosophy and Foreign Affairs.
