1. What was your very first job?
My very first job was packing boxes in my parents’ knitwear factory. It gave me a very structured and serial method of working.
2. Please describe, in your own words, what your job is and what work it entails.
My job is connecting clients’ needs to a creative process through a holistic and integrated vision of today’s industry and media.
3. How did you discover that the creative world was right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? What was there train of events that brought you to where you are today?
It was a natural process. I realized that it was actually possible to put my creativity into a job. It was more like an evolving process of connecting with my creative side. Everything worked with a natural synchronicity of events, people and energy that I met through it.
4. In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how do you find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?
