When I’m designing you can find me with my headphones on listening to Frank Sinatra and the rest of The Rat Pack. I’ve been a fan of them for as long as I can remember. You could scroll through my playlist and also find Irish rock (I’m a Heinz 57 when it comes to music).

Flavio Colasanti
Digital Marketer
Soccer is a religion in my family. I have been playing since I was a teenager (and wish to keep playing until my legs no longer allow me to!). When I was young I played in a professional team in Spain and still play during my spare time here in Italy. Thanks to soccer I’ve also been able to travel the world and study in two different American colleges, which allowed me to take Public Relations and Communications & Social Media classes. Being able to work while remaining in the Soccer world has always been a dream of mine.
