I worked on multiple Italian commercial video productions for Infinity Entertainment and as CEO and Creative Art Director of MiraBan LTD, an art and entertainment company running indie art contests and events. Versatile and explorative by nature, I enjoy taking on new roles, especially the ones requiring both creative and managerial skills.
