Something about me.
Digital artist passionate in Graphic Arts since I run into Art history at Secondary school, I kept on studying Graphic Design for print and media at High school, passing through Web Design, discovering then the CGI world.
Inspired by technology, cinema, digital photography, music and travels, I’m a neat freak and a pixel alignment maniac.
Always ready to learn new things that could improve my knowledges and might bring me new opportunities and perspectives. Always looking for something to learn and projects that makes me feel alive and keep me learning.
