Hello! I am an Italian green architect arrived in Melbourne with my family 4 years ago. I am passionate about natural building and I organize workshops for kids and adults about earth building. I am collaborating with a Earthship in Kinglake, doing some works to finish it and organizing workshops when possible. I also teach yoga in the park and I am an Italian tutor with a private school called Italian Project.
I love to spread sustainability principles and empower people to choose about their homes. I think everything is connected so I am very interested in permaculture, organic farming, regenerative design, recycling of materials and in general in a respectful way of living on Earth.
I have 2 kids, 7 and 9 years old, that love to have adventures with mum and dad and get to know different people, animals and places.
I volunteer since 3 years at the Garden group at Ecocentre in St Kilda, Elwood community center and at SKIPPS in the sustainability committee, and in the fantastic Kitchen Garden program too.
My partner Guenter is from Austria, he has been a chef for more than two decades and recently decided to become a handyman and gardener to achieve a better lifestyle. He certainly has great handyman skills and loves to stay outdoor.
He is still cooking for our family and friends amazing food! He also love to home brew different beers and cider, and sailing in the bay with friends. He partly grew up in a farm and learn how to take care of cows and horses and all the chores that comes with that.
We both love to share a good glass of wine with friends and have a good conversation but also appreciate some family time with our kids. We love nature and explore new places. We love music and Guenter plays didgeridoo. We love to be creative, and enjoy life.
