Growing up, I always dreamed of going to Italy. I went on many exciting outdoor adventures around the United States with my family and so travel was ingrained in me from a young age, but it was not until my junior year at St Lawrence University that I made it to Europe. I decided to study art in Cortona for a semester and immediately fell in love with Italy. There are so many art treasures in even the most humble of Italian cities that I was inspired to major in studio art as well as art history, and after graduating I began working at our family art gallery. It wasn’t long until I was dreaming of more travel adventures however.
Fortunately, I found Audley, which lets me satisfy my passion for travel while allowing me to express my creativity. In my free time you can find me hiking and skiing in the Adirondacks.
I'll never forget when…
One morning while in Como I had a bit of free time and decided to take the funicular up to the mountaintop town of Brunate. I chose to go very early in the morning in order to watch the sunrise. As I boarded the tram, I became aware that I was completely alone. As I rose up the mountain the sun was just starting to peak over the Alps in the distance. It was quite magical. At the top, I sat down at an outdoor café with the view all to myself and enjoyed a cappuccino as I watched the sun light up the lake.
