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 I moved back to Italy in 2010, affording me the unique experience of rediscovering my country of birth (and half of my DNA) as an adult. I’ve traveled to over 30 countries so far and love nothing more than stepping outside of my comfort zone to learn more about the world. It goes without saying that I have a particular fondness for Italy: I’ve spent the past seven years exploring the country from north to south with a ravenous appetite – not only for its food but for its unique cultural traditions, regional diversity, artistic treasures and breathtaking vistas. My curiosity propels me to seek out the best cultural and lifestyle experiences everywhere I go so I’m always learning and exploring, even when I’m home in Rome.
I am the author and photographer of The Hunt: Rome (Gatehouse, 2016) and I have been published in The Independent, Culture Trip, LUXOS Magazine, Romeing and Spotted by Locals. To see samples of my writing, please see my Published Clips.
I also offer a number of services to clients, including social media content creation, copywriting and translations. 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 am a graduate of the University of Virginia with a BA in Philosophy and Foreign Affairs.
