SHORT BIO:



Born in Rome, I lived in Venice and have been working in NY for most of my professional life. After high-school I worked as an Assistant Director at CineCitta’ the movie studios in Rome.



Then came to New York and received a BFA in Graphic Design from SVA (School of Visual Arts.) As a Director and hands-on Designer I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with marketing VPs, marketing managers, publishers, editors and apparel designers. I can organize and manage any large staff and implement entire promotional campaigns and publishing programs.
