About Mattia Settimelli

connect to your inner creator

I use art and creativity to convey messages, through all available vehicles: words, images, sounds, motions, art, events, or brands. When I can I mix’n’match more of them or when I need to stay basic and straight to the point, I choose one. I’m also a life and wellness coach.


I love to narrate stories that provoke emotions and leave a life lesson planted in the soul and brain of the reader. Books and visual art are both the perfect canvas to develop concepts, actions, brands and movements.


Sometimes a book is not enough to solve a problem. That's when I step in with my marketing background and launch a startup.


Certified health and life coach, I focus on longevity, wellness, and personal development to help people overcome obstacles and replenish their lives, living their best times. I'm a survivor and this is my way of giving back.

I like to push boundaries and dislike labels

I’m a creator, always been. I’ve always created at the intersection of multimedia, arts, and business.

I’ve lived and work remotely for about 20 years, before this was a trend (back from the early 2000’s) in almost every country you can think of, with a personal predilection for the bi-coastal US, UK, South and Continental Europe and Asia. I’m an author, life coach and wellness expert, with a passion for arts and design. Even if these days Ifocus on coaching, writing and building my own companies, i have some programs in which I use myartistic background and skills as a vehicle for healing.
