I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel the world both for business and pleasure since I was a small child. Born in the USA from a bilingual and bicultural family, I moved to Italy while still in school and never stopped traveling since. I am a true “citizen of the world”. I have traveled to over 60 different countries around the world and, in addition to the many enrichening experiences and new things that I have learned from every trip, I have also had the privilege to meet some exceptional people along the way – gracious hosts who took me under their wing and showed me around their country/city helping me open my mind in ways I never thought possible. Over the years I have tried to return the favor by sharing my own experiences and knowledge whenever one of my many friends from another country came to visit me in my part of the world. The result has been that, in addition to my great love for traveling and discovering new things, I have also developed a new-found passion in sharing my experiences and helping others discover my own country. I am lucky to live in such a beautiful country with so much history like Italy and I take great pride in being able to show my guests the true Italian Lifestyle. I am motivated, passionate, knowledgeable and resourceful which makes me believe that I would be the perfect host and guide for one of your tours!

Io vivo a Bologna da poco e sebbene io sempre per vie del centro, Jason mi ha illustrato e dato delle chicche che non avrei mai potuto sapere. Una bella scoperta!. Grazie Jason per la pasienza e gentilezza.
Visiting during CoVID times so there were not as many tourists, just the three of us on tour. Jason was happy to answer any questions pointed out areas of interest and highlighted key points. He also was there on time as were all attendees.
Very informative and animated! Thank you very much!
