I graduated in 2013 from “La Sapienza University” with a degree in architecture and urban design with the highest average. Thanks to the preparation I had at university, which was made up of working in laboratories and hand drawings, I learned to work in a team and refine my time management skills. During my university experience I decided to collaborate with an architectural studio in Rome to further enable and increase my capabilities. This exposure to more practical training aided me in joining the knowledge I had been learning at university with real world scenarios. This balance helped me become more professional and open-minded when dealing with projects and difficulties. During this time I acquired expertise knowledge of various softwares and programs. I am strongly capable of using Autocad for the development of two-dimensional graphics, Rhinoceros and SketchUp for the analysis and realization of three-dimensional modelings. I am extremely efficient in the use of T-Splines to manage complex geometrical designs. Other software includes Cinema 4D and 3D Studio Max which I have strongly used to create realistic digital images. For my thesis I was complemented on my usage with V-Ray rendering as well as Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Illustrator CS3. In addition I have enriched my interests in energy saving and sustainability methods through various courses that I have done.

Aside from these interests I am also passionate about web development and have created numerous websites for independent clients. On my personal website you can get an insight into my portfolio both architectural and web design.
