My career in public service has included 27 years at New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority, 3 at the Arts & Design division, and 24 as director of the New York Transit Museum. I'm now focused on writing about food and life in Italy where my husband and I restored an old farmhouse in Le Marche. I'm studying cooking at the Institute for Culinary Education in Manhattan. Our time is split between Brooklyn and Le Marche with our daughter. For more stories about Italy, food and cooking, visit my blog.
