Born and raised in Bari - Italy, I studied industrial engineering and got a master degree, later I moved to London - UK where I lived for 5 years, now I’m based in Parma - Italy. Before photography, I never knew I could do something with the right hemisphere of my brain, something arty. I took a photography course in 2011 but I really started taking pictures when I moved to London in 2012, mainly because I had a lot of time to spend roaming through the city street. I really don’t know why I take pictures, I feel the urge of constantly have a camera with me ready to capture whatever life has decided to present me. The more I take pictures the more I realize what I like and don't of my pictures and at the same time the more I get confused about the direction I’m taking. It's kind of a weird feeling, but somehow, i like it.

In 2017 with some friends I helped founding the international collective Superluna.
