I was born and raised in Tuscany, Italy. There, I spent my bilingual childhood playing with dogs, listening to hair metal, and writing "novels." At age 13 I moved to the U.S., making it to the southeast, southwest, and to San Francisco. Then, ten years later, I ended up back in Europe to live out my writing dreams in Paris, Dublin, and Barcelona. After an M.A. in journalism and years in a newsroom and as a freelancer, I left to find stability. Now, I've fallen in love with copywriting and its purposeful simplicity. There's nothing quite like reworking a phrase to get it just right and finding that one perfect word.
