Bio

Contact me!


I am a native Italian professional translator and copywriter with a passion
for everything related to the written word, be it fiction, essays, advertising,
puns, technical text, or whatever comes my way. I enjoy especially the playful
side of creativity and could spend blissful hours looking for the word to
perfectly fit an idea, an item, a feeling, a mood. I enjoy experimenting with
various styles and always revel in a good communicative challenge, never
ceasing to aim at the final target.

In my 10+ years of experience (I stopped keeping score when I realise the
age-related implications of this), I have transformed my secondary job into my
main source of income and professional satisfaction. I work primarily between
Italian (my mother tongue) and English (my step-mother tongue), but also dabble
in Swedish, Spanish, Latin, and Ancient Greek.

I hold an MA in English and have
studied translation theory and practice in Italy (Milan) and Sweden
(Stockholm), where I have spent wonderful years. I now live and work in the UK,
where I also do literary research at University College London (UCL),
specialising in Victorian literature. 

I have published articles in specialised academic reviews, and, among my
most recent projects, I especially enjoyed translating a novel, Davide
Gagliardi's "Zombienation" (check it out on
Amazon) and creating a bilingual press release for an up-and-coming Swiss fashion
designer, Veronica Gautschi (you can find her amazing creations
here). I also teach literature and creative writing on a regular basis, in the hope to soon be able to unleash a host of like-minded minions to take over the world. 


In my spare time, I thoroughly enjoy kicking ass during martial arts
classes (I have on my shoulders 7 years of kung fu and 2 of taekwondo), but
also, of course, reading and writing fiction. I have a special fondness for
glam rock music and the eighties, and, whenever I can, I wear my true rags and
become a pirate. 


For a quote, or if you are
curious, or just for a chat, send me an email at
info@pointyfox.co.uk.

I
am always happy to make new friends!
