I graduated in 2016 from Politecnico di Milano with a project thesis investigating community and collective space through new sharing practices and innovative management of private and public space, within the design of an experimental block in Berlin.

After working at CZA Cino Zucchi Architetti, one of the leading European studios in the fields of architecture, landscape and urban design, I moved to New York City where I am conducting both external collaborations and personal architectural competitions.
