About me

INFJ. I learnt English through reading bilingual books and I consider William Strunk to be my greatest teacher in regards to mastering the language. I grew up with an innate passion for writing and a strong desire to fix the world. Crafting, editing, and proofreading text has allowed me to satiate the first and to ease the latter: nothing compares to time spent dwelling on words. After completing a one year internship, as Editorial Assistant at L’Officiel Hommes Italia, I moved on to working as Editorial Coordinator at The Greatest Magazine, a position I have held and fit around my work schedule for more than three years now. It all started with an interview for the post of PA which took place on a park bench, and a sudden need to have an editorial translated promptly, which I did on the spot. That was the beginning of my successful working relationship with the Editor in Chief, one based on mutual esteem and respect, his willingness to teach and my eagerness to learn, and his wish to see me thrive. I write, translate, edit, proof-read, and follow the publishing process from beginning to end. I liaise with writers, photographer, printers, and PR offices; I set up and conduct interviews and write the editorial, for which I’m given a one word concept to work with per issue. I’ve created content for the website, social media, press, and for the Triennale Museum that chose our independent magazine as part of an exhibition regarding today’s publishing world; I also wrote the lyrics for The Greatest Fashion Film #8, The Greatest Fashion Film #9 - which was selected by the Milan Fashion Film Festival in 2016 - and The Greatest Fashion Film #11. After moving to London and stumbling upon my first job, I’m now seeking more suitable employment that matches my current level of experience and my passion in a company in which I can grow, develop, and belong alongside working on my writing.
