About

Welcome to my blog, Nosy Parker, musings of a curious mind. I’m Gabriana—a book-loving, chai latte-addicted, 30-something-year-old Writer/Editor, Artist/Maker, and Family Caregiver for my amazing, memorable Mama.

In response to the challenges of living with chronic illnesses and solo caregiving, I began writing about #OneGoodThing in our lives every day in 2016. We’re now in the fourth year of our power-of-positive-thinking project. No matter how difficult the day, Mama and I look for the surprising silver linings—in caregiving, food, art, style, travel, and more.

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where we enjoy mild weather, great food and culture, gardening and relaxing in our backyard oasis with Paisley, our sweet Boston Terrier rescue.

In what feels like a previous life…  I worked as a writer/editor in broadcast, print, and online media in Los Angeles and San Francisco for more than 10 years. I graduated with honors from the University of Southern California (Fight On!), earning my B.A. in Broadcast Journalism. I also enjoyed serving on nonprofit community leadership boards for 15 years. For more on my professional experience, including my portfolio of journalism and design work, please visit my website: www.gabrianamarks.com.

Let’s connect… You can find me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. Check out Mama’s blog “Giudittalia” about her adventures in Italy! You can also see more of our adorable Boston Terrier rescues on Instagram; they’re @AbbyTheBoston and @PaisleyTheBoston.

Shalom and Ciao!
