About me
I am an experienced freelance Producer and Creative Strategist. Tying together my production expertise and passion for creative problem solving to help businesses and artists develop. My experience stretches from the production of video content, social media and events. I thrive in challenges that draw on my diverse skills where I am quick to learn and grind to innovate. I have a proven track record of achieving ambitious business goals with leading corporate companies and I apply these same skills when working with startups and new businesses as a consultant. Having lived in various cities and countries I had the opportunity to broaden my knowledge and vision towards different cultures. I am bilingual in English and Italian, with good level of French.

    Creative ProducerStartup Stories
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    Based in London, Startup Stories is a small business that creates branded video content for startups, with a high focus placed on the story and journey of a brand. I liaise with Startup Story’s clients who require videos for their social and digital assets. As producer, I translate the journey into a engaging audiovisual format, which involves creating storylines, editing scripts, and working closely with the client to develop the brand tone. I oversee the production of the videos from inception to completion. During the process, I typically manage the editors and videographers, and occasionally shoot and edit myself. As part of the collaboration, I consult the client on their content and social media strategy, and suggest ways to effectively maximise the content.
