70% Italian. 30% British. 100% metalcore addict.


I am a technical translator and speak 4 languages. I am also a writer, content creator and SEO copywriter.


I was introduced to hard rock music when I was a toddler, shifted to alternative metal and metal subgenres as a child and finally moved to metalcore, deathcore, post-hardcore and –core genres as an adult. I am a metalcore savvy and metalcore senior editor.


I am a huge concertgoer and have been under vocal coaching for a few years now. I am currently a vocalist for clean and harsh vocals (bleeeegh! Ouch. Nah, not that much, just a little harsh vocals) and lyricist.


I love basketball, videogames, dogs, freestyle slalom rollerblading, writing, hiking, nerdy stuff.


My favorite bands are: Of Mice & Men, Architects, Caliban, The Royal, Wage War, Fit For A King, Our Hollow Our Home, Ice Nine Kills, While She Sleeps, Parkway Drive, August Burns Red, Asking Alexandria, Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Novelists, Northlane, Veil Of Maya, Bury Tomorrow, Crystal Lake, Silent Planet, Bad Omens, Counterparts, Nothing More, Born Of Osiris.


My best quotes:


“Metalcore until death do us part”

“I hope my firstborn is metalcore”

“Blegh is the new black”

“Metalcore will save us all”

“Wanna chat me up? Ask me out and bleeeegh”

“Metal breakdowns prevent mental breakdowns”

“Heavier is better”
