About me

<p>At 18, I broke the Italian record in 110m hurdles.<br />Since then I never stopped: Naples, Rome, Milan, Amsterdam. I shot to the top from being an intern copywriter at Saatchi & Saatchi Rome, to Bates, Testa Group, BGS D'Arcy and finally to Saatchi & Saatchi Milan where I work since 2003. As a Creative Director since 2013 I manage different people for the strategic and creative needs of my clients and I lead pitches and creative presentations for national and international brands (especially in GDO, retail and fashion-luxury markets).</p>
