Free at last! Having graduated Emerson College with a double degree in Journalism and Political Communication, I’ve decided to take a leap of faith and put myself where my mouth is. I’m moving to Iraqi Kurdistan to teach at an international school and make sense of a world I’ve been long obsessed with.
Some of you may have started following this blog from it’s inception of world affairs musings as an assignment for my Interactive Media course. Although that section will still remain a piece of the website, my main blogging focus will be on my experiences abroad. I will also be adding a photography page.

Growing up as a first generation American, I’ve always had an appreciation for other cultures. Most of my childhood was spent attending school in the United States, and visiting family in Italy over the summers.
As I grew older, this appreciation for other cultures turned into an insatiable curiosity about the world we live in. After a semester interning with the U.S. Department of State, I realized my true calling is in international affairs.
Since then, I’ve visited and worked in South Africa, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Spain, Japan, Morocco, Mexico, the Netherlands, Turkey, and now finally — Iraq.
