About 

I am a highly talented, A.R.B. (Architects Registration Board) qualified architect with numerous prizes and awards for sustainable development and radical design solutions. I have an Italian and Spanish background but I am currently based in London.

I am currently working as a freelance architect focusing mainly on sustainable refurbishment: working with clients in sectors such as the commercial, residential and hospitality industries.

I have achivied some special mention in design competitions such as "Bancaperta", an concept competition for a very import italian bank "BBC" which awarded my group and me an award for the originality and the potency of the solution. Similarly, I took a prize for "Leading Edge Student Design Competition" where I gained a mention for the audacity of the project and technological solution of the idea.
During my studies at Universita' degli Studi di Firenze I won an European studentship "Erasmus" placement for 1 year at Universida Politecnica de Madrid and also a European internship "Leonardo da Vinci" placement for a practice leader on Sustainable architecture.
