I'm the co-founder and designer of

Boxy Suite

I co-founded Boxy Suite in 2018 with Francesco Di Lorenzo to create the absolute best Google apps clients for Mac. We went so far to quit our jobs to go full time on Boxy Suite, which is our main focus now. Read more about it here.

iOS App
I designed

30 Day Fitness

One of the most popular fitness apps on the App Store, 30 Day Fitness represented one the most challenging projects for me. As a solo UI designer working on this app, I took the original interface to the next level by redesigning it from the ground up and rethinking the whole user experience with my team at Bending Spoons. The app has been subsequently featured by Apple in more than a hundred countries.

I produced, wrote and directed

Encounter

Encounter is a crowdfunded sci-fi short film I've written and directed. It's my debut short film and it's been distributed in international film festivals like VIFF. It's been shot on a RED Epic in the South of Italy. If you want to see it just ask.

Umbra by Carlo Fenizi

Umbra is a short film directed by Carlo Fenizi, written with Maria Antonietta Di Pietro. It's set in “Foresta Umbra”, a beautiful forest in Gargano land. "Umbra" means shadowy and for a reason: shooting in the dark forest proved to be challenging indeed.
