I am a second-generation Italian-American with a passion for travel, and a particular love of Italy. I am a freelance writer, travel blogger, and photographer, and write for La Gazzetta Italiana,  a monthly Italian-American newspaper, Italia Magazine, and several other online travel sites, including Italian Talks and The Grand Wine Tour.

My first book,  Memoirs of a Solo Traveler – My Love Affair with Italy,  is based on this blog and my three-month solo travel adventure to Italy.  It was honored with an award by the Florida Writers Association.

In  My Love Affair with Sicily, my second book, you will feel as though you are traveling with me during five separate trips to Sicily.

Colors of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, published in April of 2015, is a coffee table/photo book which features the peoples, streets, traditions, places, and culture of one of my favorite places in Italy.
