Radio and television Author and presenter, twirl, pause, flow and acrobatic-when-needed speaker, but mainly a dancer in her living room. To be a Deejay is for her a necessity rather than a desire : to listen to the music, more than to play and write it, just to unleash her musical mind. No longer a Facebook blogger But a Twitter copyrighter as most people is nowadays. “Social ” in her soul but never enough “network” , she is in love with the only social network worthy of this name : the radio. She has changed a lot of them loving them all . From Rock Radio Veronica Hit Radio by Antenna1 to Centrosuono after ten years passed between a mixer to another, she ends to create its own radio. From that project , which bears the name of a sauce for Japanese fearless , born Wasabi Radio Magazine, broadcasted on Radio Standby since the end of 2013. She also joinef the team of Veejays Standby TV ….. Because who knows her is well aware that there for her there are three things forbidden in her life: to sit and stay , be quiet and shut up, live without music. So no better idea than..“ MORE MUSIC….MORE ACTION”?
