About Ilenia Pezzaniti

My time spent creating is the only time I don’t think about anything else. Otherwise, I’m trying to take over the world one to-do list at a time or petting my dog. As a documentary storyteller by trade, I am naturally drawn to subcultures and their stories, but I like expanding my visual and general knowledge. At PEG, I get to be surrounded by talented people who help me learn and grow.

My best relationship is the one I have with food.
