About Tommaso

Tommaso Patelli is passionate about electronics and stage mechanics. He also has expertise in welding, CNC machines, robotics, and other metal and woodworking techniques.

During his life, he has challenged himself via numerous different educations. From an Engineering Degree in Computer Science to a Diploma in Electronics and a Cert. 3 in Telecommunications. His eagerness to learn new techniques and skills makes him ready for any challenges.

Tommaso works well in any 3D modelling software thanks to his IT background. This gives him an advantage when taking on complex projects.

He also worked as a graphic designer in the fashion industry, which led him to become a prop artist for a project in Google Labs Sydney.

Tommaso's new career challenge is to study and learn about the entertainment industry and expand his skills into theatre and film, so he enrolled at NIDA.
