making sense of misunderstandings

About me

Raised in Italy, I have followed my curiosity for language and people and have now spent almost half of my life in Berlin, a city I call my home.

I am used to working in an international environment but I also have made the experience of being the only foreigner in a team of locals: Leading people and projects I have learnt that you can overcome prejudice if you work hard, speak up and follow through.

I am married to an Argentinian and love to explore different cultural and linguistic spaces. Conflict is sometimes the side effect of this discovery journey, that’s why I have made it my calling to help people address their conflicts with confidence and opennes.
