My career began unlike most, early… aged 11.
I was a fresh-faced, thanks to TCP, student at Corona Academy in Ravenscourt Park, London. A Brit with an Italian surname that only ever had one dream and was lucky to have a parent that was determined to support my goals.
In my first year at drama school, I picked up my equity card, had been on TV a fair few times in BBC costume dramas and managed to earn more money that was probably healthy.
My grounding at home and the style of education in an industry where failure is expected has served me well, the work I did in those early days continues to benefit me to this day and if I ever get stuck in a lift, I can bore my fellow occupants with tales of working at TV centre and ask if they saw me in Gandhi.
Did I have a plan? Did I know what I was doing? Not in the slightest, but the work kept coming and when it started to become harder to find work, I had learnt enough about me and how I could fit in and try to prosper on my slice of planet Earth. (that remains an ongoing project)
A friend suggested I try for a job at a radio station and it seemed too easy, you turn up, talk a lot, they pay you and then you go home, this soon proved to be my ideal way to work… talking a lot is something I have never found hard and coupled with the fact the listener (there is only ever one) found me funny and so chapter 2 began… There are a fair few false starts and maybe even a missing chapter but it’s my story.
Nowadays London and the Suffolk coast is home, I’m invited to talk on radio across the world and I create content for UK based radio networks, mainly the BBC as well as guide SME’s with their media content and engagement through social media.
