Early life and career
Born in 1989, he studied Animation at the CSC Animazione in Turin from 2009 to 2011.

He additionally works for Comicup's production for the German girls' magazine Pferd&Co, published by Blue Ocean Entertainment.

Hotline Miami: Wildlife

Professor Breinstein
In early 2017, Dotta succeeded Sònia Albert as the artist of the 'Professor Breinstein' back cover gag comic for Zo Zit Dat, a Dutch popular science magazine for children. The gags were mostly written by Bas Schuddeboom and Jos Beekman. By the end of the year, the comic's full production was turned over to Dutch artist Roel Venderbosch, who was in turn succeeded by Jordi Peters in late 2019. However, in 2019, Schuddeboom and Dotta were responsible for the comic pages published in the 'Zo Zit Dat Escape Boek', an escape room in book format.
