I’m an ordinary person who loves to ride, enjoy nature, and spend time with friends. In 2022, I took part in the Zwift Academy for fun, trying to achieve my dream of making cycling my job. It didn’t go exactly as expected, but I didn’t stop riding and training every day to improve my performances and myself. When I start the day well with some sort of achievement, something that just makes me feel like I did something I love, that’s enough to propel me through the rest of the day with superpowers. It feels like I have wings when I ride my bike, alone or in good company. And then I can tackle anything, as my superpowers have me feeling safe and sound.

Career highlightsI am a biologist and have worked in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, achieving a good level of career success. But in recent years I have taken an interest in the world of sports and started a sports nutrition business “Nutrizione KOMpetente.” Today, I enthusiastically support professional and amateur athletes, mainly cyclists, assisting them with daily nutritional strategies and improving their performances. My dream is to be able to work as nutritionist on a WorldTour team.
