About Me

Life

Born in France in 1986 in the city of Haguenau in the Alsace region, I moved with my family to Italy soon after starting my scholastic career. Since then I moved to three different countries and five different cities, attending more then 10 different schools and learning three different languages: Italian, English and French. I graduated with 90/100 from high school -scientific lyceum – and with 101/110 from college – bachelor in graphic design from IUAV University in Venice. Since then and after a couple years of work experience, I transferred to Becker College, Massachusetts, in fall 2014 to attend the Interactive Media and Game Design program, from where I graduate three years later, Summa Cum Laude.

Teamwork

During both scholastic and professional career I’ve always dedicated myself to extra scholastic activities, sports above all. Those I spent more time playing have been soccer, since I was seven years old, and later on American football. As part of a team, I didn’t solely improve my athletic abilities, but also learned core values such as respect and sense of belonging. Together with the strong and engaging relationships I built with coaches and teammates, these experiences also allowed me to achieve personal accomplishments on, but also off, the field.

Moved by the same desire to make a difference alongside with teammates and coworkers, I have also been socially engaged as member of the know Rotary International. As such, I was founding member of the Treviso Terraglio Rotaract Club District 2060 first and of the Rotary e-Club for the same district later. While in the US, I continued my experience as a member joining the Worcester Rotary Club in spring 2015.

Games

Since the SNES era, I have always had great interest in video games and interactive technologies. This passion has allowed me to venture through numerous experiences and stories, but also different genres, gameplay and interactive styles.

Some favorites:

  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Batman Arkham City, Assassin’s Creed
  • Final Fantasy X
  • Resident Evil, The Evil Within
  • Dark Souls
  • Tomb Raider, The Last of Us, Uncharted
  • Destiny, The Division
  • Syberia, Myst, The Room
