About 

Born & Raised in Milan, Italy. I began to study Art & Design in London at Central Saint Martin School of Art & Design. I then moved to the United States for College at VCU in Richmond, VA.                    

I am a driven and detail oriented designer with an approach to see things in a holistic way. Moving around between Europe and the United States forced me to develop the ability to adapt to any situation that presents itself,  which reflects in my personality and work ethic. I learn quickly, collaborate well in groups/teams and not afraid to take on leadership roles. 

As a recent graduate I am looking for a job that can propel my career in the right direction as well as expand my horizon of knowledge.
