I’m an Italian-born, Brooklyn-based freelance illustrator with a background in graphic design and advertising.

Inspired by urban life, diversity and pop culture, my works span from commercial and editorial assignments to personal artistic explorations. My aim is to tell complex stories with simple shapes, and to speak to a broad audience through playful, inclusive and humorous illustrations.
