I love helping people preserve and discover their Italian origins. Using my decades of experience as an employee of the Italian Consulate in Philadelphia, I decided to start my own company, Itaca. I love assisting Italians, Italo-Americans and Americans navigate the laws, rules and regulations pertaining to Italian citizenship whether it be Jure Sanguinis, re-acquisition or citizenship thru marriage. 

I love my Italian Heritage! My parents came to America from Italy and instilled in me a love of all things Italian. But I am still also a proud American. Having dual citizenship lets me be a member of both cultures that define who I am. In starting Itaca, I have an awesome opportunity to help other Italian-Americans have what I have - that wonderful connection to the birthplace of my ancestors; by "being a real Italian citizen."
