About me

After a career as an Interior Designer, I decided to follow my true passion, organizing events. My design background helps me planning a project and understanding the potential of a space. Moreover, dealing with suppliers is my daily bread. I fluently speak Italian and English but I have good knowledge of French and a scholastic German. I adore art and I love reading books and admiring photography. During my free time, I enjoy stepping out my comfort zone via exploring new places and meeting new people. I am a very active individual, I relish participating in a lot of sports, from athletics to aerial disciplines. For example pole dancing, aerial silk, and hoop dancing. I always thrive from taking on new challenges.
