About me

I'm a multidisciplinary designer focused on creating meaningful products and experiences both physical and digital, collaborating with teams from research and strategy to ideation and development.

Over the years I've been working on projects across many different sectors, designing digital products, smart devices, user experiences, future-concept designs, product strategies, and more.

In the past years, I've started to dive deep into the XR world, helping tech companies create future visions of how AR/VR & Mixed Reality will transform the way people interact and live digital experiences.

My greatest passions are sketching and creating concept art by exploring 2D, 3D, and VR mediums. I simply love to design vehicles, futuristic-concept cars, and spaceships of all kinds.

That's the reason why I also developed a great curiosity about space, enjoying reading and watching documentaries about black holes, Mars, and anything related to space exploration.
