I am originally from Genoa, on the beautiful coast of Italy, which is also where I completed my tertiary education before moving to London.

I am a chartered architect, but after some time in the role, I found myself interested in the overall planning and management of projects, which led me to focus on project management. I still very much use my architectural background, notably when running projects, recognising the importance of good design and team coordination.

Outside of the office, I like to go to exhibitions and to the theatre, especially to see dance performances. I have been practicing ballet and contemporary dance since I was four years old and if I wasn’t in construction, I would have probably become a ballerina! I took part in my first LandAid 5k in 2019 alongside the sprightly TFT team which was fun, but much harder than ballet!
