After spending my career behind-the-scenes telling other people’s stories, being on camera does not come easy for me. Neither does talking about myself. My nerves get the better of me. I flush red, speak fast, and generally hope each question is the last. I’d much rather be the one asking than answering questions! Thankfully, I hide my nerves relatively well, or so I’ve been told. So when Lisa Morales Editor-in-Chief of Live in Italy Magazine reached out to ask if I would sit down for a zoom video interview, I had just enough courage to give it a go.
Moving to Italy in 2020
In my video interview with Lisa, I talk about leaving my New York City career to mastering the Art of Living On the Road (which is what ALOR stands for) to eventually settling down in the Italian Alps. We also talked about the lifestyle choices that allowed Paolo and me to take giant leaps towards early retirement. Plus, how the COVID pandemic kicked our move to Italy into high gear in 2020. I’m grateful to Lisa for making the interview fun and hope you enjoy.
Living in Italy
With ALOR Italy I’ve stepped into the light to tell my own story. One driven by a thirst for adventure that has taken me all the way from Iowa to Italy. Over the last few years, I’ve been sharing what Paolo and I have been up to on ALOR, but now with interviews and articles like the one above, I’ve started sharing how we’re able to live the life we do. More on that to come! For now, if you’re curious what it’s like to move to Italy or live in Italy as an Expat, I’d love to have you along for the ride on ALOR Italy.
