I am a sport journalist and PR expert with extensive world class experience. I have fulfilled media duties during several sport events such as Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, World and European Championships in a wide range of sports. With a Bachelor on Communications Sciences and Technologies, I completed my master's degree on International Journalism at Cardiff University.

I have extensive experience as a writer and photographer in major Italian newspapers and magazines and served as the Photography officer at the Turin Olympic Games in 2006. After my Olympic experience I became the Media and Publicity Officer for the Welsh Athletics federation where I created and delivered a strong media and communications strategy and reported from the London 2012 Olympic Games and 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi producing all media related content.

Building on my experience in Welsh Athletics, I was selected as the Media Officer of the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Team for the Youth Athletics Championships in Lille and the World Junior Championships in Barcelona. I then moved to Qatar, working for the National Olympic Committee in the inaugural National Sports Day and beginning a long-standing involvement with the Doha Diamond League, the foremost track & field competition in the country.

Since 2013, I have been part of the Media Office at Sahara Force India Formula One, building and delivering the team's digital strategy and fulfilling a growing role as part of the team's media operation. I have now spent five full World Championship campaigns, building an extensive network among the paddock media.

In addition to my professional involvement in sports, I have developed an in-depth knowledge of the world of motorsports eSports, assuming the position of Director in one of the world's leading eSport racing series, GPVWC Simracing.
