I left everything behind me when I was just 21 years old to give myself the opportunity of studying design in probably the most design iconic city, Milan in Italy. When I arrived for the first time in Italy I wouldn’t even speak a word of Italian, but thanks to willpower and friends met on my path I had the possibility to begin a new life full of excitement but sometimes also disappointments.
I pursued my studies both in Italy and Spain attending classes at “Escola d’Arts i Disseny Superior DEIÀ“ in Barcelona and at “Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti NABA” in Milan. Especially during my studies in Milan I learnt a lot about product design.
During those years I got also the opportunity to take part in several projects and design contests and I’ve worked for a furniture design company in Milan.
At the moment I’m living in Grenoble, France, where I’m working at my first collections and I’m also collaborating with local architects, designers and craftsman.
