A freelance journalist and travel writer, I recently returned to the US after more than four years of living in Rome, Italy. Currently the BBC's travel editor at large, I freelance for the New York Times, Guardian, Atlantic, AFAR, National Geographic Traveller, Budget Travel, Mother Jones, World Policy Journal, Lexus, and Mariner, among other publications. You can read some of my recent work under "Articles." I also have contributed to five Fodor's guidebooks on Italy, Rome and Europe.
My photographs, some of which you can see at my site Exposed Italy, have been published in a variety of publications, including the Guardian and the BBC's Olive magazine. My film work includes serving as a storyteller for a documentary on Caligula for the History Channel and hosting a travel film on Rome for MSN U.K.
Before moving to Rome, I studied history at Yale and completed a M.Phil in international relations at Cambridge. I went on to become a political reporter in Washington, D.C. for U.S. News & World Report.
If you're looking for help planning your trip to Italy, I offer one-on-one travel consulting sessions.
