During the time spent in United states he made the decision to become a fashion designer, he moved between Milan to follow is masters program in Fashion Design at the Marangoin Institute.
Over the next few years he alternated between styling courses at Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design in London. Return to the US to Parson and enrolled in pattern making.

Wow! this guy is a pulse of energy, his clothes and design are reflection of that.
