I grew up in Italy, Germany and the UK, and moved to California to study politics at Claremont McKenna College. My work experience reflects my belief in public service. I enjoy working directly with people just as much as I like journalism and communications; I’ve mentored a child who’s having trouble at school, registered thousands of people to vote, made documentaries and published websites. Web design and development has been an aspect of most of my jobs and I enjoy putting content together in fun and visually appealing ways.
As my skills in writing have improved, my ability to affect positive change has increased on an interpersonal level. My work in a civil rights law firm has also helped make changes on an institutional level.
In my spare time I go kayaking, river tubing, walk my dog, and participate in as many group activities as I can find. I enjoy tinkering with computers, including building or breaking them (accidentally.)
I speak Italian and I know how to butcher German and French.
I currently run my own game development company.
