Filippo
Selden
Video & Media Consultant

   I am a creative rationalist. I like legos and numbers, but also art and logic. I don’t believe in black and white. Everything can be looked at differently. Anything can be great.  I have 16 years of experience in marketing management, but I still curious as the first day. I never cease to challenge myself. I never allow myself to be dull or bored. I never stop looking ahead or asking questions. For me, passion and quality are two faces of the same coin.
