I received my first fantasy book when I was 6 and more or less during the same period I received my first deck of MTG. I have never stopped playing since then.
I met my best friends while playing Magic, and together we started our first adventures in the RPG world. My adolescence was carefree and nerdy: I used to spend my afternoons playing (too much) WoW, whereas in the week-end, I used to play the role of a human thief.
I have always had a certain attitude for business: when I was a boy, I opened a site for selling gold in WoW (I’m sorry Blizzard). The money earned was all spent on financing my collection of DVDs and games. My second great passion, as a habitual curios, is design. That is why I decided to enroll at the IED university in Milan, for the course of study of Product Design.
During university I had the opportunity to get an internship at a design atelier that won a Compasso d’Oro (It’s like an Oscar but for design projects). I also achieved relevant goals by winning a contest announced from IBM, and displaying two of my university projects at the Milan Furniture Fair.
It explains that, when facing any problem of any nature (from designing a house to, as playfully stated in his book, “cooking green rice”), you can divide it into macro-level problems, which in turn can be separated into micro-level ones.
Dealing with these small elements one by one, you can easily reach a conclusive solution.
My heart will belong forever to Tolkien works, but I was also fascinated by the Dragonlance Chronicles and A Song of ice and Fire.
