I'm the author of Ferrante Fever: A Naples Travel Guide Inspired by Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Novels. My writing has appeared in Condé Nast Traveler, Grove Dictionary of Art, Gothamist, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NPR, Roads & Kingdoms and TripSavvy. In 2010, I won a food writing award from the American Institute of Wine and Food.
I taught art history at Seton Hall University, was a Lecturer at the Met Cloisters from 2003-2018 and have been Program Director of the International Center of Medieval Art since 2008. I’m an expert on the Middle Ages and Renaissance in Naples.
