I am a transversal artist and architect, dedicated to the creation and transmission of the arts and culture. Worked formally as an independent artist since 2014, exhibiting and creating site-specific artworks in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Santiago, Berlin and Venice. I am engaged with bringing art and culture to a broader audience, and see this as part of my responsibility as an architect and artist; I have been able to do so by teaching art workshops for children in social-risk and in cultural centres and also working as a museographic architect designing exhibitions for museums and cultural centres.
