I graduated from an interdisciplinary honours bachelor in 2020 with a specialisation in Economics, and I am now a few months away from a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Before Black Swan Capital I worked as Compliance Analyst at a tech start-up, and I am bringing that rigour and attention to detail to my work as Administrative Assistant. I have just begun my career in the financial services industry, so I feel privileged to be working with and learning from David and Ed.
As an Italian I am in love with food so cooking is a big part of who I am. My other passion is stand-up comedy, I started performing in Amsterdam during my undergrads, and fun fact: that’s how first I met Ed. I also practice Feldenkrais, which is a movement method for better posture, and that comes very handy after a long day sitting at a desk.
