Scrivere (to write)
This is the story of how I became a writer and podcaster.
As a child, I wrote and read all the time. Once I hit adulthood, I pursued a marketing career which I enjoyed and had a natural flair for but.. there was always something missing.
So, in 2008, in the midst of a corporate ladder climb, I took some time off with my sister to visit Italy – the motherland – as our Calabrian parents call it.
It was during this trip that I was immersed in art, architecture and carbohydrates – lots of them (especially the latter). I journaled endlessly, translating every possible sight to paper. Getting lost in Venice (maps be gone), “la passeggiata” (the evening stroll) in Roma, and breakfasts overlooking the Positano coast indulging in Cornetti. And the words just flowed.
Upon my return, with a well-worn journal in hand, I decided to pursue writing and balanced my corporate marketing and PR career by day. By night I wrote fashion editorials and covered stories on interior and creative building designs.
I transitioned to a full-time freelance writer (editorial and copywriting) in 2011 and haven’t looked back. I’ve expanded my “writing” sights to also cover the many products and projects designed to mitigate climate change – a space I’ve always resonated with.
Today I am also the host of the PROTECT Podcast (launched in 2020), where you can listen to encouraging stories from climate advocates who discuss sustainable initiatives and ocean and animal protection.
For my fellow readers, you can see transcriptions of the episodes here and also follow me on my Writings page. Here, I discuss the ideas and learnings from our climate advocates and translating that into living a more ethically, sustainable life.
When I’m not writing (rarely), you’ll find me exploring Victoria’s stunning spaces with a young family in tow plus spoiling my two senior staffies. I’m also reading memoirs, mastering vegan cooking and did I mention I’m writing a crime fiction book? It’s all about balance.
So, thank you for being here and supporting my work. I know climate change is a topic that can sometimes feel overwhelming and dire but I’m here to redirect the conversation with the help of people who are making real change. I think it’s about bringing our ethics in check, supporting organisations who are making a meaningful difference and continually pushing our governments to deliver.
I stand with many who believe that rewilding the planet is possible. That we can coexist peacefully with wildlife and the marine environment can recover. Thank you for being here ~ Angela
