nDash Writer Profile for Toni DeBella



About Me

I'm an independent writer, copywriter/editor and blogger, living and working in a medieval hill town in Italy. Not only do I write travel- and lifestyle-related articles, I produce creative online marketing content and engaging product/brand descriptions for both U.S. and Italian clients. I'm conscientious, detail oriented, highly organized and always meet deadlines and targets. My biggest strength lies in my keen ability to develop relationships and build vast networks of people all over the world. Since moving from San Francisco to Umbria in 2012, my tennis game has adjusted to clay courts and I've limited my daily consumption of caffe lattes to four. Seeking long- and short-term projects. Have computer, will travel.
