LECTURING + SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
I am an adjunct lecturer for several undergraduate study abroad programs in Florence, designing and running storytelling-centered courses in fashion media/journalism and travel writing. I regularly guest-lecture in communication-focused classes around Florence and love the energy and fresh perspectives of university students; I’ve also participated in numerous panels on you-name-the-topic. (Love a panel). If you’re a teacher/school administrator, writers’ group director, or a club (cult?) leader looking for an ENFP type to inject some new liveliness into your roster of guest lecturers, let’s talk!
TRAVEL TIPS + ITINERARY ADVICE
Traveling to Florence for the first time (or the fifteenth)? Want to talk things through ahead of time with someone on the ground? I offer tailored consulting sessions through the just-launched online platform Well Traveled, which aims to bring travelers the perspective of a friend-of-a-friend living in their destination city. It’s kickback-free, fun, and a fantastic alternative to stress-scrolling through forums on a site that rhymes with CripSurpriser – promise. Book a session here – you can request me or browse through other consultants in the lineup to find your perfect match.
LOGISTICS + FIXING + LINGUISTIC ASSISTANCE
As a fixer-for-hire, I love lending a hand (and a bilingual ear!) to international television and film crews who need assistance from someone who knows the lay of the land, the language, and *just* the person to call in a pinch. Contact me about your project and how I can make your time in Florence easier!
