I am an Italian-American architect and interior designer.
I was born in New York, I grew up in Italy and after ten years living in the magnificent but chaotic city of Rome, I'm now living in New York City  for fresh inspiration and to further my professional career.

I have my degree in Architecture from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a thesis on an Archaeological Park accessible to people with disabled or reduced capability of motion and/or sensorial. I have a Master Degree in “High complexity Restaurations and Consolidations, planning and construction of civil and religious architectures“, where I was in direct contact with the various professional figures that work together to achieve interventions of structural restoration on high valued architectures.

As a junior architect for over the past three years, I was involved in design, renovation, and conservation. After having worked for several reputable architect firms in Rome and New York City, I have gained a considerable work experience from the projects of residential and commercial buildings, offices, structures of hospitality, museums, and conservation sites.
