I am an Italian graduate in Building Engineering and Architecture and, after spending some time studying abroad, I worked as Architect for different international firms in China and Italy.

My various working experiences, in the particular the last one as Project Architect, made me develop not only my technical skills but also the social ones thanks to the different opportunities that I have got during my career. Indeed, I could deal directly with private clients and public administrations, with local design institutes and disparate contractors, performing in first person the project reports and taking part to the more technical meeting. In this way I reached the building site stage with four different projects managed directly by myself during the last year.

I am an organized but open-minded person, with a strong sense of personal responsibility and teamwork, characteristics that I developed since my first working experiences as rugby coach during the university years, until the most recent ones as architect and project manager. I traveled a lot, for business and to satisfy my curiosity towards different cultures, and I am willing to move, relocate and challenge myself with new experiences.
