Get to know a Momenteer: Patrizia!
We are so thrilled to welcome one of our latest members of The Moment family, Patrizia Locondro! Patrizia joined us in December 2017 as our new Studio Manager, and boy are we glad to have her on board! Organized and efficient, Patrizia is curious and always willing to lend a helping hand, and the studio benefits immensely from her cheerful demeanour. Her thoughtful approach to organization and taking care of The Moment team definitely doesn’t go unnoticed – she recently stocked our kitchen with chocolate after overhearing some Momenteers discussing a craving. Patrizia is uncanny in knowing what is required before we even know it and she adds a certain magic to our work. We are so happy to have her around, and hoping that one day she will teach us all a little Italian! Welcome, Patrizia!
What’s your nickname? Or what should it be?
Patty, Pat, Pa and every single short version of my (apparently very difficult to pronounce) name!
What are you most proud of?
Besides my beautiful child, the fact that I am bilingual and I have two countries to call home. Also, moving to a new country and starting over, multiple times.
What concerns you most these days?
The present and the future of the food we eat. Trying to be a “responsible eater” is something I’m trying to achieve most of the time.
What compliment would really make your day?
I really appreciate you. Best compliment ever!
What word do you totally love?
Soothing. It sounds so peaceful and … soothing!
What word or words do you overuse?
I use “really?” a lot. It’s my way of saying “please tell me more about it.”
What fictional character might be your avatar?
Simon’s cat (the animated cartoon). He is so hungry all the time!
Dogs or cats?
Love dogs, but definitely cats. And I have my favourite: Lola!
Tea or coffee?
I am coffee addicted, but I don’t mind a good cup of tea now and then.
Beer or wine?
Wine. White. With seafood. LOTS.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I would love to be a chef. I just love cooking and I am great at it. Yes, I said it!
What profession would be at the bottom of your list?
Electrician. Dealing with wires and electricity just scares me!
If you could have lunch with anyone in the world (alive or dead) who would it be?
I really want to say my dad. Second choice would be Ryan Gosling. Yup, I am honest!
What do you love about your work?
The people I work with, the environment, the studio, and all the possibilities I have to learn and grow! I am very grateful to be part of it and share this adventure with my team.
