ABOUT ME
I was born in Italy, where I completed an Art Diploma, a Certificate in Graphic Design and a Certificate of Communication for Business and Cultural Image. After working as Graphic and Magazine Designer between 2000 and 2005, I left for my gap year in Australia and returned to the Pacific one year later to visit New Zealand, where I eventually settled in 2007.

I have got over 15 years experience in Graphic Design, both overseas and in NZ. For the past 3 years and currently, I’m working as a graphic/web designer and product photographer for a Rug Company in Parnell, Auckland.

In my spare time, I also like to take part of group and no-profit exhibitions with concept artworks.
And I believe there cannot be good art without mastering the art of contemplation.
