I am an Italian Senior Strategic and Product Designer (UX) with a strong passion for Design methodologies and Brand Innovation. Over the last 8 years, I gained meaningful experiences in different innovation projects in Italy, The Netherlands and Germany, driving teams and clients through a mixed approach based on Design Thinking, Lean UX and Agile. As a side activity, I teach Discovery Research and Validation Methods at TAG and I'm a guest speaker and mentor in Adobe events worldwide.

I feel confident to mentor and coach design professionals interested in growing in the following disciplines:
- UX Design
- UX Strategy & Design Maturity
- Data-Informed Design
- User Research
- Service Design

My approach to mentoring is deeply rooted in the idea of nurture, enabling and empowering designers to grow with high support and confidence. As a standard process, I shared industry tips and resources and created a career plan to achieve your goals. Looking forward to having you!
