I began blogging in 1999 to connect and commuicate with others. When I studied abroad, that blog chronicaled my college memories and occasional culture shock. I leveraged my love of blogging and online communities into a career in politics and I retired that blog to focus on professional pursuits.
In 2017, I relocated to Florence, Italy. I spend my free time learning Italian, traveling to new and beloved places, and exploring through the lens of my camera. I created this blog to share those moments, images, and experiences.
