about me


Living in Florence

I began my Living in Florence blog when I moved to Florence, Italy in 2004. In my blog, I recount life in "my beloved city" and how it continues to inspire and nurture me.

Me, My Heart, and I

In the Me, My Heart, and I blog, I share my reflections of life as an expat writer as well as anything that inspires me.

Expats in Florence

In the Expats in Florence column that I created for The Florentine, I interviewed expats living in Florence and wrote about how they arrived in Florence and how they were transformed by it.

“Florence is home to many expats: those who have longed to live here, those who have found love and moved here, and those who have come to Florence and felt immediately at home. Many people arrive in Florence with a desire to redefine themselves and are reborn. Florence is the cradle of the Renaissance and transforms those who are seeking to follow their hearts.”
