I am an architect and designer who has been working in the field for 15 years. I hold a Master's degree from Politecnico Di Milano and have worked on various multidisciplinary projects across Europe and the Middle East. My focus has always been on Architecture and Design.

Throughout my career, I have gained significant experience in several fields, including architectural design, residential development, and construction management. This diverse background has given me a unique approach to design, allowing me to consider the impact on constructability, budget, and project schedule.

As a design manager on projects assisted by the World Bank, I have gained valuable international experience. Working with international teams has helped me develop strong communication and problem-solving skills. I am capable of organizing work, prioritizing tasks, and producing high-quality products promptly.

My work involves designing various buildings, including residential, retail, office, industrial, cultural, mixed-use, and sports facilities. I am currently based in New York.
