I was born in La Spezia, a coastal town in the north of Italy. Played music and drama for years and then graduated in ancient philosophy from the University of Parma in 2006. Since then I have lived in various European and Asian countries working in fields related to art, entertainment and teaching while also volunteering for different non-profit organisations. That same open-minded attitude and desire to connect with the others brought me to photography in 2014.

Partly self-taught, I have also attended a workshop in Athens by Nikos Economopoulos in 2016 and took part in a one year documentary photography masterclass led by Fausto Podavini, Giovanni Cocco and Rosy Santella in Rome in 2019/'20. Currently working on multiple projects.
