I began translating Italian to English in Rome, Italy for the travel publication, WHERE Rome in 2004. This work exposed me to subjects including: food, wine, history, culture, travel, and and profile pieces. Translation of ad copy also taught me a combination of comprehension and editing skills. I have worked with  numerous publishers, including: Time Out, Doring Kindersley, Bibenda Editore, e Amex Essentials.


I began to focus more specifically on wine writing and Italian to English translation in 2009, when I returned to the States and launched my company, DiVino (http://www.DiVino.Wine). As a certified sommelier, fluent in Italian, I began, and to continue to offer translation and copywriting services to wineries, brands, and businesses. I also count among my clients, law offices, Italian publishing houses, authors, researchers, and students.

Keywords: Italian, English, wine, food, culture, travel, marketing, sales, video subtitles
