About Me.

LEVEL-HEADED, MOTIVATED, AND SEARCHING FOR INSPIRATION.

I have found myself in a variety of roles in different industries. All have been interesting and a learning curve for me. The most fun I have had though is writing the stories of the brands and people taking on our services. I enjoy bringing a voice to companies that have a great deal to offer.

My name is Giulia though I do have a few nicknames as well. I am a passionate writer and a fiercely enthusiastic home cook. I began cooking as a young girl and is likely one of the first things I remember doing, while I started writing around the age of 12 years old. I cannot say I thought that I would be able to write for a living until I found the joy of relaying the stories of the people around me. The written word can be a great tool in connecting with the world and getting your message out there.

I would describe myself as someone who cares for sustainable development in all areas, particularly food and agriculture. On a personal level, I am on my way to becoming a homesteader as I see small to medium organic farms to be the future and a necessary one. I am confident but also a bit too modest about some of my ideas. I am dedicated to projects to the point where I am not always sure when it is time to call it in. I care deeply about completing a project successfully and to the best of my abilities, even during disagreements. For this reason, agriculture and sustainable food are of interest to me, it is about getting the job done correctly and ethically.

Shortly after returning back to South Africa my partner, Charl V. Nigrini, and I founded Blk-Ink Studio following a life long passion to have our own graphic design and copy-writing studio. in a desire to bring our passions, interests, and talents together we also founded Urban Yolk in order to help share knowledge on our base ideology of nourishment through diversity. Since we have decided to relocate to Switzerland which has prompted the founding of our most recent and exciting company ontwerp. A graphic design studio focused on minimalist design to achieve simple and elegant visual branding to last the ages. In the long term, we hope to establish ontwerp in Switzerland permanently.

Currently, I am looking to expand my skills within the food/agricultural industry while offering my skills as a writer and content manager. Ideally, I would love to work for an organic and ethical dairy farm but am very much open to opportunities across many fields.
