Ma Fratelli is my fictional namesake- a nickname for those years when we always gave each other nicknames. I love her- she is a misunderstood mutha with a rebellious streak. She is an unofficial muse for my blog posts.

In real life, I am not a criminal, like Ma Fratelli from my beloved Goonies, but a full time working parent with three young children. I am an American living in the UK who works in the arts and culture sector. I am so many things and on any given day these might change.

I like to go on long walks, sunshine, ice cream, books, Netflix, red wine, white beer and blue suede shoes.

I love my family and friends too.
