A FEW WORDS ABOUT ME

Creating things which are useful and aesthetically appropriate for their aim and target users is what fascinates me: To observe the behaviour of people confronting some item, find the problem and get the solution.

I strongly love my time as teacher which has served me to understand better the bases of design, applying the same dynamic for design as for creating the content in class: Comprehend – Define – Design – Prototype – Test – and start again.

I love to learn things the feeling of understanding a new subject makes me feel good. Regarding the environment at work I get on well in teams and even if I handle also well to work  alone, I consider much more rewarding to be in a team, where ideas can be contrasted with others  at any time, giving you the possibility of finding solutions that might not appear when you are on your own.
