I am from Italy and Japan. I grew up in Milan and I am currently based in Cape Town, South Africa.

I am, first of all, a very curious being.

My curiosity has driven me in many different directions: graphic and web design, sailing, cooking, voice over and visual art.

In 2010, I graduated from Politecnico di Milano, majoring in Communication Design.

Since then I have worked in creative agencies as an Art Director and as a Freelancer Graphic Designer, carrying my activity with me in the following years of travels and life around the world.

I have been living abroad since 2012, adapting my lifestyle and work to very diverse settings.

I have lived in Mallorca (Spain), on the coasts of Uruguay and Brazil, and in a rural village in Cambodia.

Now permanently based in Cape Town, I continue to pursue my passion for design, bringing a fresh perspective to my creative work from years of movement.

I believe creativity comes from curiosity.

I believe life comes from variety, ideas from perspective.

I am an adaptive creative.

Ready to bring a fresh perspective to the table, with out of the box thinking and an international blend of creative solutions.
