Attended Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) and Westminster University (Fundation Studies in Art and Design, London). Graduated in Graphic Design from Kingston University (London, UK). I spent the following 20 years switching between various forms of design and photography while working on different assignments/projects around the world. My work focuses mainly on social, anthropological and humanitarian issues.
I am particularly interested in the development of personal projects that give a real, current and, I hope, true vision of what is unfolding in front of us and around the world. My long term project "BEAUTY IN HELL: Beauty over Dramaâ€ focuses on finding and documenting the beauty (and not the drama) which, I strongly believe, is always present, even in some of the most difficult realities around the world.In the last 3 years my photographic work received a number of international awards (PX3, IPA, LensCulture, Allard Prize and HIPA finalist among others) and was exhibited in various locations around the world (Biennale dellâ€™Arte 2013, Venice â€“ Espace Beaurepaire, Paris â€“ Arles Photo Festival â€“ GHISLA Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Locarno â€“ Palazzo Cusani, Milan â€“ and more).

My 20 year experience stretches into a wide range of Design/Art/Photography areas: Graphic/Web Design to Concept Design, from classic Photography to Photojournalism/Reportage (my true passions), from Mobile Applications to Software Design, from analyzing the User Experience to evaluating Usability/Accessibility, from consulting to brand restyling.
