  • Developing ideas for childrens' books
    I count Roald Dahl, Tim Burton and most recently Lemony Snicket as my biggest influences in helping me generate ideas for characters and story lines.


  • Gathering content for a family recipe and history book project
    Learning family recipes from my "nonna" (grandmother) and other relatives is a real treat - especially since I get to eat the results of my efforts. In the coming months, I will begin collaborating with relatvies - one a photographer and the other a graphic designer - to work on making this book come to life.


  • Knitting
    I've just started learning the basics but aspire to be as great as my grandmother. If you are a friend or relative and you are reading this, rest assured, you'll be getting somethng knit by me for Christmas or a birthday.
