I turn Foreign into Familiar
A Connoisseur of Flavors and Sights.
The kitchen is my Canvas,
Culinary Travel the Language of Life!
I am an unapologetic LIFE ENTHUSIAST and loving my LIVIT life!!
Born into an International family, we appreciate other cultures through languages (even when they giggle at your mistakes), and sharing culinary heritage!
In Italy, I received my degree in INTERNATIONAL TOURISTIC SCIENCES from the Universita’ Bocconi in Milan. My 7 years in Italy is alive in me today!
My career experiences have fueled my passions. I’ve been a SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETER, TOUR OPERATOR in Boston, TOUR LEADER in England, and an ENGLISH TEACHER for Italian adults. A CHEESE CONNOISSEUR for Dean & DeLuca, NY, and a Las Vegas strip HOTEL CONCIERGE specializing in Intern’l. Cuisine. An ORGANIC LIVING CONSULTANT, too. I answered an ad and became a singer in a POP ROCK BAND in Italy, and more recently I’ve been offered a TV SHOW, and VOICE OVER work for an animated series.
But it’s our LIFE EXPERIENCES that open us to this magnificent world. Have you ever ridden an Arabian horse over the desert dunes of North Africa where a glass lake comes to view? Then crested the opposite dunes to witness a huge orange sun resting her head on a Mediterranean bed…? Have you hiked the Maritime Alps that unveil fields of wild lavender softly waving at you?
Have you eaten wild strawberries right off the forest floor in Provence, shared homemade wine with locals on a sleeper train in Rome, or tried ‘sparrow soup’ prepared by a hunter-chef in Bergamo? Have you hiked up to a walled city to dine in the “Best Restaurant in the World” in Mougins? Or felt time stop… watching cascading fireworks reflect off the nighttime sea on the French Riviera?
What is the movie in your mind? Life is Fascinating. LIVIT!
