I’m happy to be one of the UK’s go-to native Italian voices and have extensive voiceover experience.
I have voiced toys and video games for companies like Hasbro playing iconic characters such as Marvel’s Friday and Black Widow; commercials including Charlotte Tilbury, Amazon, Trainline, Barilla, Huawei, Alfa Romeo & Aquafresh, along with audiobooks, corporate, online, film and TV for companies such as MTV and World Health Organisation.
Born and raised in Milan (Italy), I studied in Paris at Sorbonne Nouvelle for a year and then moved to London to further my training at Drama Centre – Central Saint Martins. I also trained as a jazz singer and speak fluent French & Spanish. Having trained in music, I have an excellent ear for accents and can do a wide variety of them.
As a singer songwriter, I have had the privilege to record an EP at Abbey Road Studios and was one of the three finalist of the competition Rock The House 2015.

I’ve voiced several audiobooks, among them:
THE MADONNA OF THE MOUNTAINS, in English:
INSEGUENDO UN SOGNO, in Italian:
