 About me

I’m a writer, translator, and curator based in Italy. I grew up in the American Northeast and Midwest, and have called London, Lyon, Montréal, and Naples home.

I recently completed an EU-funded Masters in Heritage Studies at EHESS Paris / ELTE Budapest, which included a research & dramaturgy residency at the Fondation Royaumont (France). My academic research investigates the relationship between authenticity and intolerance in the context of intangible cultural heritage. 


In my client work, I have consulted for international education social enterprises, health and science start-ups, and with Californian and European food and wine clients. Published translations include French-to-English exhibition catalogues and Italian-to-English commercial work (websites, print material, books). I have also served as a live Italian-English interpreter.

As a curator I bring interdisciplinary creations (dance, music, and visual arts) into heritage spaces, and help provide cross-cultural translation between artists, cultural institutions, and the public. I’m passionate about acting as a linguistic and cultural bridge between Francophone, Italian, and Anglophone performance spheres.
