My first book Italian Joy was published in 2005. It was one of the most humbling moments of my life. Holding the first copy in my hands, reading my words, telling my story about leaving a successful business and career to go find the right life for me, a life full of passion and love. I could hardly believe it was true. I remember seeing the photos of my Italy for the first time in print and leafing through the pages with tears of joy rolling down my cheeks. Since then I have had the honour of photographing 8 books and writing 3 and since that day it’s become one of my favourite creative addictions.
