EXPERIENCE
I have 14+ years of experience in design, between agencies, startups and big corporations.
I don't just push pixels: design strategy, vision and forward-thinking are some of my most appreciated skills.
I have experience on a variety of digital products, with awards winning titles in my portfolio.
In 2015 I moved to Los Angeles to work with JibJab Media Inc. for their educational brand for kids, Storybots (now acquired by Netflix). For my work as product designer on this brand I’ve won an Emmy Award in the category “Outstanding Interactive – Enhancement to a daytime program or series” and a Webby Honoree for the Storybots website.

Now I’m back in Italy, working remotely as Design Lead for MetaLab.
