I am a 2D Character Animator, Stop Motion Animator, Animation Director, Illustrator, Storyboard Artist, Character Designer and Graphic Designer, as well as an animation educator. I am a very versatile artist, who likes to portray the world through my imaginative eyes, giving a touch of magic and enchantment to all things around us.
I attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy (my home town), where I achieved a painting degree. I then worked for two years as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer for an Italian publishing company specialised in children books and publications. In 2007 I moved to London to attend a Post Graduate Course in 2D Character Animation at the London Animation Studio (Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) graduating in 2008.
Since then I settled down in London to continue my animation path, still working in illustration too.
In the past ten years I worked in many London companies and for a large number of clients as a freelance Animator as well as a Designer, Storyboard Artist and Illustrator, for both commercial and more independent projects.
Since 2010 I also started teaching animation mostly to young people, running animation courses and workshops across London and beyond. In 2017 I lectured at Central Central Martins over the short course "Drawn Animation for Beginners".
