Art director and graphic designer for over twenty years. Currently, painter by night and barista by day.


There are many things I am passionate about and most of them are related to design (of all kinds) and to outdoor activities. Somehow, I’m convinced that these are tied; after all, nature is the greatest designer perfected through evolution and there are many things you can learn by contemplating it. Observing people’s behaviour and habits in different cultural environments, as well as having a constant exchange of views with them, helped me to do my job better.

About colours, gradients, lines, shapes and pixels, I fell in love with them during my first job when I was a student and I haven’t stopped enjoying Graphic Design ever since. From that first time, I considered it a fascinating field which helped me to constantly reinvent myself with practically limitless creative expression.

Throughout my career, packaging design and identity/branding have been the areas where I have had the best performances and have brought me the biggest satisfactions in my work. Perhaps that is why my hobbies gravitate around drawing and crafting different objects having more or less of an artistic purpose and various functionalities. I’ve always been enthralled by knowing and reproduceing what’s ‘inside the machinery’ to see how it actually works in real life.

Painting naturally followed as an extension of a more complex artistic need expressed differently than through graphic design. Spontaneous modeling of shapes and mixing of colors are steps that I consider to follow and that offer immense emotional satisfaction.
