In addition to my work with ANSA, I currently write for SEO agencies, small business blogs, and social media campaigns. I take on special projects and assignments by request.

I’ve been fully immersed in Roman daily life since 2001. I speak fluent Italian and enjoy writing about Italy; the Italian language and language learning; the expatriate experience/moving abroad/culture shock; lifestyle and trends; and personal growth. I’m especially well-versed in travel and tourism writing.

I have a wide background in writing digital content for blogs and social media platforms, corporate communications (internal and external newsletters as well as correspondence), direct marketing, email marketing campaigns, and advertising copywriting.

Do you have a writing project? Please contact me to discuss.
