BIO (SHORT):





Born in Italy, I was raised in Venice, lived in Rome, and have been working in New York for most of my professional life. Immediately after high school I started working as an Assistant Director, at CineCitta’ the movie studios in Rome.

After a few years, I saved enough to move to New York. Not sure of what to do, I completed a BFA in Graphic Design from SVA (School of Visual Art) and, just recently, a Master Degree in Education.

I have been very lucky. As a Design Director, hands-on Graphic Designer, and illustrator, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with a great number of talented people working as marketing VPs, marketing managers, publishers, editors and fashion apparel designers.
