my story

In 2012, I moved from San Francisco to Orvieto, Italy.

When not serving as an international cat escort, I earn my living as a freelance copy and travel writer. My work has been featured in such publications as The Telegraph, DK Eyewitness travel guides, Closer Weekly and Italy Magazine, and I’ve appeared on House Hunters International, The BitterSweet Life, The Food Police and The Iceberg Project. My personal blog, Orvieto or Bustchronicles the experiences and observations of an American woman living in a small, medieval hill town in Umbria.
