Born in May 1983, I spent most of my my childhood watching Japanese cartoons.
My fate was clear, I fancied myself piloting a robot, or perhaps drawing comics.
I enrolled at the Art Institute and there discovered the magic of photography and the darkroom.
Imagining worlds and characters, telling stories, I always thought how interesting "seeing things that others do not see" can be.
After high school, while I was doing odd jobs on daytime - including a photographer's assistant in the beauty / hair styling - I continued studying at the Castello Sforzesco's cartoon school in Milan at evenings.
I left my assistant work early, and started to do street photography and personal projects only. Walking for hours and days, observing life, smelling its smells and listening to the sounds of the street.
Thus began the hard life of a freelance, sharing my time among photographic projects, illustration and comics.
Drawing and taking photos was a continuous exchange and comparison.
