About 

I am a recent graduate of Parsons School of Design, with a BFA in Architecture. Growing up in a cross-cultural context has given me the ability to formulate bridges and connections, strengthening and solidifying purpose behind work. My years at Parsons gave me the tools and skills to express all that I have learnt growing up. Attention to detail and composition are sensibilities that developed in me while studying architecture, but carry on in every aspect of my life. A minor degree in photography, coupled with my degree in Architectural design gave me the ability to visualize my designs as a spectator, removing myself from the moment of creation, thus being able to also reach the viewer. 

I was born and raised in Italy, growing up between Milan and Venice. From a young age art, architecture and interior design as well as photography have had a strong influence in my life, since both my parents worked in the fashion sector. This environment nurtured a strong passion and keen eye for proportion and design sensibility.

Having had the opportunity to travel to many different parts of the world, I have had the pleasure to experience and interact with many different cultures. My family’s creative profession has grounded my education in the broad field of esthetics - interior design, architecture and photography are disciplines I have grown up learning, mostly in the culturally rich contexts of my childhood homes.

My architectural work has always revolved around visuals and the ability to express not only technical information, but conveying emotion and the feeling that drove the project.
