About me
I’m an international brand consultant, who has been working for global companies for the past 16 years. I am currently working for European brands in different fields - Digital Healthcare, Telco, Food, Drink, E-learning, fashion, banking, NGO - and, among the others, I have recently rebranded the UK based Byron Hamburgers. I previously worked in the emerging markets of the Sub Saharan Africa, developing and supporting brands like Vodafone, Pepsi and Pizza Hut, with the aim to provide Zambia, Uganda, Cameroon, Zimbabwe and Ghana with social connectivity and international culture. In the last year, I have rebranded an e-learning platform for Vodafone and a Telco in Ghana. I started my career working for Inarea, one of the leading Italian agencies in corporate identities. I then moved to London where I worked in the fashion branding and advertorial field for a while, working for brands like Petit Bateau, The White Company, Pure Collection, Laura Ashley and liaising with magazines like Vogue and i-D. In 2007, I created my own network with the aim to offer bespoke integrated consultancies to agencies and SMEs.
