I am based in Brussels, Belgium and available for remote collaborations.
I was born in Trieste (Italy), a wonderful city by the sea in the northeast of Italy. I started working as a professional web designer and video editor at Luxa, an Italian web tv now disappeared. Adobe Flash (now Adobe Animate) was my best friend. I needed a bigger market to swim in, therefore I moved to Milan, where I started working for a big multinational, as a web developer. 4 years later I moved to Brussels, in Belgium.
I took more traditional art courses and started drawing and painting. In 2014 I joined the academy of fine arts of Watermael Boitfort, in Brussels, where I started to develop my practical drawing and composition skills. I love expressing my inner feelings with forms, colors, movements.
Since 2017, to improve my video animation skills, I took many classes (most important ones are After Effects Kickstart , Animation BootCamp, Cinema 4D Basecamp, Design Bootcamp, Illustration for Motion and Advanced Motion Methods) at the School Of Motion, an amazing and interactive Animation school with great Teachers. I now work with Adobe After effects, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Animate and Maxxon Cinema 4D to create video animations and explainer videos.
I am very grateful to my wife who has been supporting me for so many years …and still is in this adventure.
