I have an empathic mind that loves thinking creatively to generate strategic design solutions, facilitating processes and tailoring new business opportunities.

My experience includes a wide range of disciplines that integrate both digital and analogic ways of working with design thinking methods, focusing on concept generation and creative direction. I am interested to explore different fields - from craft to industry - pushing boundaries and facing new strategic and organizational issues. I strongly believe that only a research-based practice with a prolific collaboration through several professionals can lead to successful projects. I am passionate about illustrations, visual arts, digital fabrication technologies, ephemera and curiosities.

Abstract

Born in 1985, I studied Industrial Design at Politecnico di Milano and Interaction Design at TUDelft (Netherlands). I worked in the seven past years as freelance creative strategist for indipendent manufacturers, strategic consultancies, design galleries, public and private institutions. From 2009 to 2011 I have been art director of Danese Waste.not limited edition collection for two years, while I was working for the italian design brand Danese Milano. From 2011 I am co-founder of Tecnificio, a maker facility that uses digital fabrication technologies (as 3D printing) to enhance experimental works for a new generation of digital craftsmanship. I worked as freelance creative strategist for Italian design galleries (Subalterno1, Nilufar, Nero), strategic consultancies (Martina Gamboni, Sharazade), public and private institutions (Politecnico di Milano, POLI.design, Regione Lombardia, Banca IFIS Impresa). My works were shown as part of exhibitions at Yerba Buena Center of Arts (San Francisco), Palazzo Ducale (Venice), Triennale di Milano, Miart 2017 (Milan), Maison Folie (Mons), The Others Art Fair (Turin). I'm passionate about illustrations and visual arts, and I collect ephemera and curiosities.
