I was born in the summer of 1981, in Bari.I started taking pictures from young age when my mother gave me as a gift my first camera, it was a “Polaroid 636 close up” that i still use every now and then.By growing up i developed a great love for cinema that let me graduate in humanities with thesis in Pasolini's cinema and a diploma at the cinema academy of my home town.During this time i dedicated myself to independent filmmaking, writing screenplay, doing the direction of photography After several I films to Milan where I won a post- graduate scholarship a master of photography and visual design developed in collaboration by Naba and Forma where I obtained the highest of the grades.After that I was Giovanni Gastel's assistant for a short time.
