I am an enthusiastic swiss-army knife who loves everything creative. If you need Creative Video Editing, 2D Animations or Project Management ranging from boutique to corporate, you are in the right place!
Hooray! You've stayed on this page for longer than 10 seconds, here's a weird picture from set for you.
Throw me a new challenge and I will learn how to do it and deliver quickly and to high standard, usually with a side of dumb humour.
Creative Video Editing|Motion Graphics
This brand doesn't need an introduction in the UK. It has been great fun to work on the 2022 Commonwealth Games social media assets.
I've loved designing and animating these assets and developing a new intro and outro animation that has been adopted by the brand outside this campaign.
Video Editing|Motion Graphics
Beatchain is a growing start-app with a focus on helping emerging artists thrive. During my two years at Fondness I've jumped in and helped in a variety of projects, pitching in with anything that was needed from creative production to storyboarding, to motion graphics and of course editing.

Oh how much fun I had with this one! I made this short video as part of the interviewing process. The task was to make a 30s social media video out of a zoom interview. I was also provided with a blog post about the interview for extra context.
In today's social media jungle there are three key things you should always consider for your content: it has to stand out with originality; it has to give as much information in little time (but it has to be realistically digestible in that little time); it has to work with and without audio.
The blog post was the inspiration to create something that stood out from the usual split screen zoom call we've seen one to many times since lockdown, making it fun and dynamic and highlighting the salient points the author originally wanted to prioritise.
Showing the blog’s headline quickly contextualised it, the chapter headings summarise the words of the interviewee (freeing the video from heavy subtitling that’s often too much to read in a short time) and scrolling up and down the page makes it dynamic and eye-catching.
As a cheeky bonus, all the key information is always in the middle of the screen, making this work both in vertical and square format - this way you avoid wasting resources in resizing rounds.
Creative Production|Account Management
Acqua dell'Elba is an Italian luxury fragrance brand. While at Fondness, I've been involved in pitching to and winning this international client, after which I've been managing the account. It has been a great adventure to help with the creative production and being the videographer on our shoots on the beautiful Italian island of Elba.

Script Writing | Storyboarding
BMI is a global Roofing and Waterproofing company, it has been a great place for my first corporate experience. Here I worked mostly on internal communication videos, but also had the chance to work on one of my favourite projects to date: Courtney's Story.
For this, I could experiment with script writing and storyboarding, working closely with Courtney to tell her inspiring story.
Simone Gallorini, my line manager at the time, has once again been a great guide and a brilliant videographer for this project.
Transcreation Production | Rotoscoping | Project Managing
MinutiDiFisica and MinutiDellaTerra are the official Italian Youtube channels of MinutePhysics and MinuteEarth, two successful educational channels.
In 2016 I wanted to share their great content with my Italian friends, and had the privilege of putting together a dream-team of professional translators, scientific proof readers and dubbers.
I took care of the on-screen translation with some freshly-learned After Effects magic and reached out to the channels to get rights to open the Italian branch. It has been my first experience producing and managing an intricate team, and we successfully brought to life educational videos to a high standard of transcreation and voice acting.

Lucky Trip is a new and growing travel booking start-app. I've been asked to make a 10s video that follow the same style and feel of the other brand's video, choose a destination, research it, source the footage and put together a quick, fast paced video to promote the destination.

Seacily is a short video homage of my home's sea side, ever present in our life growing up - a video scrap album of calm, happy memories.
A SIDE OF DUMB HUMOUR
You made it all the way to the end of the portfolio, I applaud your commitment!

Please enjoy a silly video from 2017 made to apply for a gig in lovely Australia. Pardon the poor sound quality and the occasional image jump: I wrote and put together the video in less than 24h.
You would think that finding out about an application that requires making from scratch two videos, one essay and a cover letter three days before deadline would put anyone off, but free travel across the globe will make for a very motivated sleep-free Linda.
For a little context, the assignment was to put together a funny fake ad convincing my compatriots to spend their holiday
money in Australia.
I’ve started my freelance journey after helping to grow a startup agency (Fondness - they're cool and you should check them out). I’ve been lucky to kick it off as a Senior Campaign Manager for the Rolex team at Hogarth Worldwide, where I’ve met amazing people and learned more than I could hope for.
With five years’ professional experience as a Video Editor and Creative Producer, I’m comfortable working out of my comfort zone, taking on tasks such as research, creating briefs, project management and even management of entire accounts. I've been involved in business development, presenting to new clients and winning new business. I've led talented animators, editors, designers, translators and dubbers around the world in team sizes ranging from boutique to corporate.
Throw me a new challenge and I will learn how to do it and deliver quickly, usually with a side of dumb humour. I enjoy diving into the details and engaging with clients at all levels. I’ve managed complex and mission-critical projects for global brands like Wella, Rolex and BMI. Drop me a message - I'm always up for a chat and for the next challenge!
