I was born 1985 and spent my childhood and youth in the backwoods of Milan, Italy. A lot of books, comic strips and a constantly growing stamp collection helped me fight against afternoon boredom and inspired me to my first drawings.
2002 a school exchange program brought me to Kaiserslautern, a city in southwest Germany. The change of air turned out to feel even better than I had dared to dream, so I decided to stay. After senior high school I moved to Berlin, where I studied education with a focus on media-pedagogy. Later I worked as a project manager for a children’s media publisher, as a teacher and as a social educator. But I missed something: daily activities with pencils and paper.
And that’s how it happened that since 2012 I address myself completely to illustration. I like China ink and watercolor best. The city and its building became an important core of my business. When I’m not drawing, you can find me in the kitchen or on my racing bike in the surroundings of Berlin.
