You must know your destination port if you wish to catch a favorable wind.

Lucio Anneo Seneca

who I am

According to the dictionary, the word talent means, "a special natural ability of a superior capacity or a marked innate aptitude for achievement or success".

Ancient Greek asserted that this capability is one of those hidden qualities that you never really know you have until you suddenly discover it. If you do not try, you will never find out. The only way to know what gift you have is to try them all.

For instance, when I was a teenager, I had an internship with the Air Force Academy in Naples in order to become a fighter pilot. I love airplanes, but my personality and the military-lifestyle were not a good match. Although I had few exciting flight hours piloting a civil airplane, I realized that such professional figure would never match my future life. At about the same time, I painted several works and entered them in a competition. To my astonishment, I won first price, which paid a cash award, and 200 serigraphs of these works were printed. I also got my picture in the local newspaper.

From this, I said to myself that drawing would come fairly easy to me.

Once I discovered my capability, I had to meet two conditions. First, I had to choose where to pursue a degree in higher education concerning art subjects. Second, I had to plan how to have a successful creative career as a professional digital artist. After I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts and the European Institute of Design with two majors in Digital and Virtual Design, I became more and more conscious that Computer Graphics is what I was absolutely looking for.

In order to focus on it, I had to ask myself two simple questions. First, do you like doing it? Second, are you good at doing it?

One answer, one sentence: I've got a fever and the only prescription is more Computer Generated Imagery.

Even though anybody can use a software to make something that looks like a group of geometrical objects, it takes art to make numerous thoughts look like a reality. I have got skills and know-how to achieve that goal. So far I went to the US where CGI matter has developed in several and incredible ways. It gave me more strenght to become an industrial professional.

Today I live in Rome and I'm getting deeper into the rythm of User Interface and Interaction Design related to Mobile and Web Development enviroment.
