Buongiorno a tutti! Erica Firpo’s Ciao Bella has published my interview with JJ Martin. Yes, it’s true I rave about her and her brand often but I know first hand how difficult it is to be an entrepreneur in Italy. What JJ has created is incredible. It was truly a pleasure to sit down with … Continue reading My Ciao Bella interview with JJ Martin, founder of La Double J
Ciao from a rainy morning in Rome. I know I said I was going to write on this here blog more often but work this year has been very hectic. Perhaps things will slow down during Spring ’22! I’m not complaining as these are good problems to have, especially during these strange pandemic times. I … Continue reading Villa Necchi, A Must See/Do in Milan
Last summer I was interviewed by the lovely Tamu McPherson owner/creator of All The Pretty Birds. Those who follow fashion know what a big deal Ms. McPherson is in the industry. She’s a smart, dynamic, woman with a strong style POV. Tamu is also kind, down to earth, and hilarious. When she said she wanted … Continue reading My Tamu’s Cafe Interview

I have to say I had a great time in Milano. I don’t think I could live there with all the fog and smog. It’s too cold during the winters (ten years in Los Angeles, has clearly thinned my blood) and too grey. The “rivalry” between Rome and Milan is similar to the one between … Continue reading I Know There Is Beef Between Milano And Roma But…
This was the first time I’ve been in Milan for longer than 24 hours and only my second visit. I had a great, yet exhausting, trip. I do realize I saw the city at its most happening. I will write a separate post about Milan. I cannot wait to return. The Salone (April 17-22) is … Continue reading Buon Viaggio: Salone del Mobile 2012, Milano
