Passionate about Art and Design.

As a creative person I want to show to the world my imagination; "If you do what you believe, the dots connect" (Steve jobs). I have always believed and appreciated art and design, nature being my mentor.  

I adore traveling, experiencing and seeing new cultures. It fires up my imagination.  I chose design because I wanted to bring harmony into peoples everyday lives. 

I had the opportunity to attend the Florence Design Academy and learn various computer design programs such as 3DsMax, AutoCad, Photoshop, it enhanced my ability to develop that which does not yet exist. 

Anything I can imagine or a client can dream up, can be digitally-rendered to look real on a computer making our vision a virtual-reality. 

 "When it cant be done, DO IT, or it will never exist".
