View Resume

I was born in 1985, in a small town of Puglia, called Marlboro City (Brindisi). I grew up in a family of music collectors. My mother was born in Buenos Aires and my father is a former Italian football player.
I like to be inspired by everything, that's why I'm so curious and I never go on visual diet. Music is my comfort zone, I’m also a dj (a.k.a. Play Eva). I love the sea and I do surfing since 10 years. It makes me strong and fearless.
In my work experience I learned enthusiasm, determination, teamwork, leadership and ability to adapt. I've always thought that every form of communication is a way to self-expression and smiling everyday is a media.
I'm a creative mind and I refuse the label of being just an art director. I like writing and I love creating things, no matter the media.
When I discovered advertising, I felt in love with this kind of hidden art: I’ve pictured my self in the future like a smart artist that can combine Typography, Graphic Design, Crafting, Words, Photography and Cinema to do beautiful things that my parents can understand.

Agencies with whom I’ve worked as a freelance:
APART COLLECTIVE - DDB Group - ACCENTURE - EDELMAN - AREA CONCERTI - C41 - PRAESIDIUM
