I have worked as a journalist in the United States and abroad for news and media organizations and publications including: Newsweek (Hong Kong/New York); People (Rome/West Coast US) ; In Style; Business Week (Rome/West Coast US); National Geographic's Green Guide; Who Weekly; International Environment Reporter; Cucina Magazine; Thomson Reuters News Agency; the Associated Press; RAI (Radiotelevisione Italiana); San Francisco Chronicle; and Travel and Leisure.

My current work involves photographing the beautiful and rich culture and traditions of Italy's indigenous cowboys, the Butteri. I am passionate about the environment, nature, and wildlife, and my work explores my relationship with the natural world. I also enjoy shooting portraits of buildings, humans and animals.
