My words mean business.

I am a writer, citizen folklorist, social media marketer and B2B editor living in Tucson, Arizona.

I explore culture, and work in online media, print publications or face-to-face communications programs. I facilitate social networking, community outreach and special events. I produce grant applications, blogs, e-books, white papers, scripts, articles, marketing campaigns, Q&As, Facebook fan pages and an assortment of communications materials for individuals, business and non-profit in Tucson, New York City and other locales nationally. In my free time I pursue all things related to travel, books, folk arts and cultural tradition, sewing and research about my family history in Reggio Calabria, Italy.
