About Me

I'm a committed educationalist (and passionate sports fan!) with roots in Italy, the US and UK. I'm interested in several areas including:

- Teacher development, movement-building and empowerment

- Education in Sub-Saharan Africa

- Creativity in education

When I'm not working, or moaning about AS Roma's latest defeat, I can be found travelling around, screenwriting or cooking.

I live in Milan, Italy and hold an MSc in Development Management from the LSE and a BA in Economics from Trinity College Dublin.

My Work

I recently joined the Moleskine Foundation as a program manager focusing on WikiAfrica Education, as well as some other bits and bobs around mainstreaming creative learning in education.

WikiAfrica Education is an ambitious pilot program in the Johannesburg area aiming to capitalise on the results of WikiAfrica Schools to building Communities of Practice of educators and wikimedians working together to find new, innovative ways to bring wikimedia into learning.
