I was born in Perugia, in the green heart of Italy.
I am a graduate of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan, Italy, and of Mills College, Oakland, CA. I live in Northern California with my husband and work as an academic researcher in Medical Information Science.

My food writing has appeared in: the North Coast Journal, Remedy Quarterly and Edible East Bay. My essay “Fresh dry beans: an edible oxymoron” published in Remedy Quarterly won second place in the 2016 Association Of Food Journalists Awards, Best Non-Newspaper Food Feature category.
I am working on a collection of memoir pieces.
“The Egg Beater” won first prize at the 2013 Redwood Writers’ Memoir Contest and “Mint Tea” won third prize at the 2015 edition of the contest.
