I grew up on Long Island in a typical Italian American family that emigrated from Sicily

I have called New Orleans home for the last 10 years

I like singing to my dog (see picture above for said dog)

I use commas more often than I should 


I have been horse back riding since I was 5, and the barn is where I go to relax


I do not like having to mow my lawn in the summertime in New Orleans


I listen to a lot of podcasts

My love for coffee comes from my memories with my grandmother

When I was in 8th grade I received a Polaroid camera for Christmas. My first camera. I took pictures of everything. Everything. I was so excited to take my camera with me on a week long field trip to Washington, D.C. that year. When we returned to school the following week,  I showed the images to my teacher. She asked if she could hold onto the photos. A few days later my images were hung in the halls for the entire school to see. This was my first “solo” exhibit.
