I am an editorial intern at Foodista, and living in Seattle, WA. Since I was little, I followed my dad around the kitchen, preparing dishes. I studied in Italy for a year and learned all about "La Bella Vita" and food. Today, I follow the food movement, and hope to educate others about the beauty of eating well. I also write on my personal blog adragna.org.
