I am not a journalist, but I am often consulted for my expertise on all things travel and all things Catholic.
I’ve been running a successful tour company since 2004, personally bringing thousands of people on pilgrimage across Europe and the Middle East.
I am an American who has lived in Rome since 2014. My apartment is just steps away from the Vatican (my walk to Saint Peter’s Square takes 60 seconds) meaning I am often the first on the scene any time Vatican news breaks, including the death of Pope Benedict.
For remote camera interviews, my terrace makes in excellent back drop.
Pope Benedict Death
There was also a live BBC piece via Zoom with me walking around Saint Peter’s Square talking about the crowd. I don’t have a clip of that one.
