"Love in Action Heals Us and the World"

Author - Photographer - Trauma Recovery Advocate
A Member of Photographers Without Borders

My innate curiosity and empathetic nature have guided me on a journey of traveling the world and providing assistance wherever I go. My sensitivity has driven me to support various causes, ranging from renovating an orphanage in Kenya and a clinic in Malawi to raising funds for their betterment. I am a nonprofit photographer and have had the honor of collaborating with numerous organizations globally. I firmly believe that Love in Action has the power to not only heal the world but also bring healing to us as individuals.

As a passionate advocate for using travel as a means of creating positive change, I have evolved into a child welfare activist and a champion for preventing animal cruelty. My philanthropic endeavors have taken me to Italy, Malawi, Kenya, Tanzania, and Puerto Rico, where I have raised funds for various causes. My background as an archaeologist, conservationist, and photographer has led me to spearhead a project aimed at providing free sterilization for street dogs and cats in Italy.

My commitment to various causes also extends to supporting organizations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Mercy for Animals, Best Friends Animal Society, Kiva, Mercy for Animals, the ASPCA, and the LAV (Lega Anti-Vivisezione Italia). Additionally, I have been sponsoring over 50 children globally through PlanUSA for the past 19 years.

Hailing from Milan, I have lived in Italy, Missouri, Colorado, and California, and possess a Bachelor of Science degree in Archaeology and Art History from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. It is an honor to meet you and I am thrilled that you share my passion for taking action, which I refer to as Love in Action, to bring about a more positive world.

I strongly believe that Love in Action has the power to heal the heart. Join me on a journey of self-discovery and healing, as we explore the numerous opportunities for Love in Action that exist all around us every day, anywhere in the world.

No need to start big—just start where you are!
