I’m currently living in Italy, between Lake Maggiore and Milan. My husband and I are planning to move back to the UK in 2023, where we lived for almost 10 years up until the pandemic.
I’m contracting with an Italian web agency in the role of UX designer for BPER Bank. Work is mostly remote. I am specialising in digital accessibility, having trained in-house and recently helped UniCredit Bank comply with the WCAG 2.1 (AA) rules. The plan is to complete the course Introduction to Accessibility on edX and get the official certification.
My main goal is to avoid reading the news every day, focusing on the many books I bought.
- The Left Hand of Darkness, by Ursula K. le Guin
- The Deception of Harriet Fleet, by Helen Scarlett
- Extra Bold – A Feminist, Inclusive, Anti-racist, Nonbinary Field Guide for Graphic Designers, by multiple authors
- Hamnet, by Maggie O’Farrell
- Stories of Your Life and Others, by Ted Chiang
- The Norkfolk Mystery by Ian Samson
- Women & Power by Mary Beard
- The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
- Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman
After a long hiatus that started just before the pandemic, I’ve picked up knitting again. For now, it’s a matter of exercising as I’ve lost my dexterity.
Another hobby I’m slowly picking up again is photography. Feeling uninspired ever since the pandemic made me sad, because photography is a passion I’ve been cultivating since around the age of 12. I’m planning to create a website to collect and regularly publish my photos. It won’t offer the ability to comment or like, as I’ve lost interest in those after I’ve left algorithmic social media.
This is my now page, where I tell you what I am up to at this point in my life. You can make one, too.
