Although I have a bachelor degree in Japanese 🇯🇵 Language and Culture, I’ve always been passionate about design and eventually managed to make a living out of it.
I like travelling a lot as I do believe that visiting different places and learning about new cultures can truly open your vision. Infact, I’ve been lucky enough to have experienced life in some awesome places. Born in the US and raised in sunny Italy, I’ve been living in Japan for 3 months, over one year in the Netherlands, 5 months in Germany and I’m currently based in London where I work as a Product Designer @Monzo.
When it comes to design, the most important thing to know about is that it involves other people. Great products can’t happen because of just one single person’s contribution. They are instead the result of collaboration between different roles within a company. I’ve written quite a few articles on the topic, especially about devs ❤ designers collaboration.
I’m also a hardcore Design Systems advocate and contributed both code-wise and design-wise to the carwow live styleguide.
