Alessia Cesana

I am a creative strategist and consultant with too many interests, philosophical studies and a predilection for the Arts.
Brit at heart, I consider myself an elective descendant of Oscar Wilde and my not so secret wish is to see the Doctor park the TARDIS in my garden to take me away.
I am currently writing my first novel while I tweet too much, model in my spare time, stalk squirrels in the parks and am a lovely human being after all…
