SUBMIT YOUR MUSIC TO FEATURE IN MY TV SHOWS
I get most of my music from stock production sites that give me an unlimited download license, however, I know how hard it is to get your work out to a big audience so I’m happy to use your track if you want some exposure. I love to include a wide range of music from classical, jazz and big band to pop, reggae, electro, house, hip hop and R&B. I’ve used tracks from unsigned and signed artists from all over the world. Generally I’m looking for music that is upbeat, sexy and preferably with lyrics that aren’t too focused on heartbreak or sorrow – my shows are always pretty happy. 😉 I can’t use covers as the rights to air famous tracks are prohibitively expensive. The best way to show me your work is to put it on SoundCloud and email me the link.
GET ME TO SPEAK AT YOUR EVENT
I love public speaking and have experience giving talks to both entrepreneurs looking to make a life change and follow their dream or start a business, and high school students looking for career guidance. Email me for rates even if you’re not sure I’ll be in your city – I’m constantly travelling so you never know! I’m happy to speak for free for charity events that resonate with me personally.
DO AN INTERNSHIP WITH ME
Want to break into the world of film and television, food, travel, journalism, digital, marketing, tourism or PR? I can’t offer paid internships but I’m always working on some pretty cool projects so if you’re very self-motivated and like the work I do please email me. At the moment, with all the travelling I’m doing, I can only take on interns who are happy to work remotely and communicate with me via Skype and email. It may not sound as exciting as being on the road on a shoot with me but if things work out and we get on that’s always a possibility. 🙂
FEATURE YOUR FASHION LABEL IN MY SHOW
I wear a mixture of my own clothes and accessories and some products that brands send me. If you’ve seen one of my shows, you’ll know I like to change outfits almost every scene. 😉
GOT A HOTEL OR RESTAURANT IN ITALY OR ABROAD
None of the places featured on this site have paid to be here. I don’t cover places just because the owner is a ‘friend’ as is often the case in Italy. I’m passionate about keeping this site free from ‘advertorial’ so the hotels and restaurants featured are all places I genuinely love and have stayed in. If you think your property is special, feel free to send me an email and I’ll check it out.
GOT A TOUR COMPANY
I’m sorry. Here’s the thing… I don’t really believe in tour groups. I think it goes against the idea of flaneuring, of discovering things by chance, of being respectful to the local community and the environment and not ruining a town by arriving in a giant bus with a woman with a flag and a megaphone. I know, I know… tourism also provides jobs for locals but I still think tour groups en masse can be damaging both culturally and ecologically. THAT SAID, maybe you guys are different. Maybe you’re not like the rest. So by all means get in touch if you think I’d like your tours but I don’t write about or feature anything on this site that I haven’t experienced personally.
