The Traveler // A Muscovite, raised as a Milanese, now living between Los Angeles and Madrid. If I'm not at a studio, I am on a road trip, standing on some mountain, or near a river taking pictures of bears... or cows. I proudly bring my passion for nature and world traveling into my work; be it through shape, color, layout, texture or attitude.
The Designer // I specialize in motion design. Boards, research and concept are the reason I love my work. I offer a range of services including concept, design, animation and editing, allowing me to follow a project from beginning to end.
The Team // Throughout the years my career has allowed me to form links with a wide range of artists. For projects with a wider range of needs, I can provide you with team.  Bringing together print and motion designers, photographers, sound and video editors, I can provide you with a whole package of  work.
