Born in Italy on February 18, 1985. In Turin he began his personal research through experimentation with the media of photography and video frequenting the Academy of Fine Arts. Among his formative experiences he worked as assistant for William Klein, Sarah Moon and Mimmo Jodice on projects published by Agarttha Arte and Contrasto. The focus has always been on portraiture, driven by the strong attraction for Richard Avedon's tidy figures and the raw truth of Nan Goldin. Currently he works as freelance photographer and videomaker. He curates for Wired Italia a portraits project during the Wired Next Fest since 2017.
