bestpictureofmeI am an interdisciplinary, creative independent professional passionate about telling stories, finding the connections between seemingly unrelated things and bringing material to life to communicate with other human beings.

My background is in the performing arts and classical music, with additional extensive study of European languages and literature. As a writer I draw on my diverse and wide-ranging experience to find the essential narrative in any situation and the most fascinating and unique characters to bring into the spotlight.

As a translator of Italian to English, my experience ranges from sports news, journalism and PR material for numerous cultural and artistic organizations to short stories, literature and narrative nonfiction by the most current and contemporary authors active in Italy today.

Other interests include sunny days, coffee, cats, 20th century history and, increasingly, punk music.
