Freelance creator

Illustration, graphic design, software

I'm constantly looking for interdisciplinary challenges and learning opportunities. Originally, I'm an electric engineer specialized in robotics and self-driven vehicles. I've been moving to the space of design and computational creativity through a bunch of web projects. In the last couple of years, I started to give more space to my artistic self-expression, I've been studying graphic design, illustration and animation basics. I'm passionate about inclusion and accessibility.
