In 2018 he started working as INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER and DESIGN MANAGER for Huawei, at their newly formed Milan research center, where he oversees customer experience related projects.
“Domus Academy definitely came at the right time: although I had already worked with prestigious clients on several projects, I felt the need to deepen my understanding of design with a more holistic approach, also to be able to encompass a broader spectrum of values whilst developing design projects. Skills developed during the Master have been later paramount to get to the highest levels of the consumer electronics industry and beyond.”
