San Francisco, CA, US



I am an Italian Architect - Engineer with a passion for 3d modeling and visualization.

My dream is..well, it's my goal and I'll tell you when I will achieve it. But I'm working hard on it!

I practice basketball, football (soccer in some part of the world..), beach volley, climbing and I am a professional diver.

I actually live in Shanghai, China and I lived in Italy, Spain and USA too. Next step? Who knows?
