What else would you like to tell our group about yourself?

I would like to learn the language and travel in the country. I also would like to enjoy some Italian wines with folks who are like-minded.

How did you learn about PIAZZA ITALIA - The Washington, DC Italian Language & Culture MeetUp group?

Meet Up

What is your favorite Italian book/author, Italian film, Italian song/musician, Italian food, Italian city?

My favorite Italian City is probably Rome although I prefer the smaller towns and the country - especially Lake Como, Tuscany and Cinque Terra. I have many favorite foods - too hard to pick one. Ny favorite Italian musician was my father who played the violin and bass. He actually played in a band that backed up Frank Sinatra at the now-defunct Rustic Cabin in the Palisades, NJ.

How long have you been interested in the Italian Language and why; at what level do you speak Italian; are there any other languages you speak or have an interest in?

I always have wanted to learn but have never acted on it. I am a beginner although I understand a few words.

Introduction

I was born in NJ, grew up in Baltimore and now live in DC. My father was Italian and was born in NYC and his parents were from Napoli. I currently am the executive director for Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. I have skied in Italy.

What Mary Jo T. is saying about this Meetup Group

I got there late but it was a beautiful evening. They didn't have my name at the entrance but it was not a problem.
