  • Description

    Hello! We are Dominique and Alessandro, and currently live in Rome, Italy.

    I'm originally from Switzerland but after spending time in South America, Australia, and the United States, I've settled in beautiful Italy—for now. I work as a freelance editor and content writer, but my true passion lies in writing stories, and I'm in the process of finishing my first novel. I speak English, German, and Italian.

    I was born in Rome, Italy, and have worked as a pizza chef for many years. I love to cook, and have spent two years working as a chef in Switzerland. My dream is to one day open a little bakery, since I'm fascinated by everything related to bread-baking. I speak Italian, English, and am learning German.

    Together, we like to travel to new places, taste international food, learn about new cultures, and meet lovely people from all around the world—and maybe even find a place we want to relocate to! We spent summer 2021 in a lovely village in Crete, Greece. In May, we'll be travelling through Botswana for two weeks, camping and enjoying nature and wildlife.

    This summer, we'd love to experience a cooler climate. We've enjoyed our trip to Scotland in 2019 very much and would love to get a deeper look into everyday life there.

  • More details about your skills

    I've worked in journalism and digital marketing for over ten years. Before starting my career in writing, I've worked in tourism, welcoming guests from all over the world in their holiday homes. Supporting myself throughout my studies, I've taken on various side-jobs, for example as: a cleaner in a cinema, an assistant at auctions, a cashier in a super market, a bartender in an Irish pub.
    I can teach English, German, and basic Italian.

    The kitchen is my territory. I especially love to bake bread, make pizza, or cook nice Italian pasta dishes. I have limited handyman skills, and a special bond with cats—I might have been one myself, in a previous life :) I've also worked as a barista and make exceptionally good coffee.

    We're both good with small kids, having a toddler nephew and a baby niece, and even though we've never had any animals of our own, we love their company.
