Hello and welcome to #StoryHabitat.
I’m a journalist based in Los Angeles working for the Italian and Swiss press reporting stories from the United States, formerly following the entertainment beat and now also covering social justice and global health. I’ve started out as an archivist handling daguerreotypes in an historical photo archive in Florence, Italy, became a photo editor in Milan, Italy, and moved to LA to become a correspondent for the Italian press. I’m now a freelance digital journalist figuring out how to integrate stories through different social media platforms and languages. Best part of my job: researching, knocking on doors, and connecting with people.
Born in Italy, raised in France, and turned into a Californian, I mostly write in Italian but recently started publishing in English and won the 2018 California State Publication Award from the Journalism Association of Community Colleges for a profile story on a woman’s efforts to make sense of her tragic memories of the Holocaust.
I’m currently a graduate student in media studies at California State University, Northridge (CUSN) and work part time at Tom & Ethel Bradley Media Center at CSUN digitizing and researching for preservation, multimedia projects, and upcoming exhibition the photo collection Richard Cross, a Pulitzer nominated photojournalist who traveled to Central America in 1979 to document the wars in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. I’m a volunteer for the Online News Association (ONA) to help build a local community and organize events relevant to digital journalists.
