About

Version 2

I’m a British-Italian journalist living in London. I’m currently a reporter at Quartz, where I write about European social and political news, language, and a smattering of other things. A selection of my published works is here.

I previously worked on the social media desk at the Telegraph, sat on the Board of Directors at Global Voices Online, and reported at Index on Censorship. I lived in Shanghai for a couple of years, where I blogged, freelanced, and attempted to learn Chinese. I studied global media at LSE and history at SOAS.

I’m a fan of stories from across the world, cycling, swimming, yoga, food, music, travel, and books.
