And they include practical, playful tuition on image making and advice on how to get your stuff out there.
He connects with folk from his studio near Civitanova and in the summer at his mountain retreat. His online sessions are both individual one to one sessions and are also for groups via ZOOM webinars and whatsapp. They are always lighthearted and playfully challenging.
As an artist, he exhibits his work internationally and lectures on the subject of Creativity at conferences in the USA and in Europe.
