Welcome to my website! I am an Italian linguist with a varied background including creative writing, computational linguistics and graphic design. I am currently working as English to Italian translator and webmaster, with an ongoing freelance activity as private Italian language tutor and voice-over performer for recordings of tourist information for major British historical attractions.
Management of a portfolio of high traffic websites in Italian. My duties include:
Contribution to several academic activities alongside my PhD studies, including:
Creation of a large and richly annotated Italian web corpus using an entirely non-copyrighted sample of texts crawled from the Internet for the PAISÀ project. Main duties included:

Apart from writing and translating for a living I enjoy producing book, comic and movie reviews for a number of webzines including Sbam! Comics, Transit: cine y otros desvíos and The Steampunk Journal.
I have also a side activity as graphic designer and illustrator, having contributed to the Leeds Student Newspaper (now called The Gryphon) as editorial cartoonist during the 2012-13 academic year and self-publishing fanzines and minicomics. You can check out my portfolio here.
