I was born and raised in Milan, but since when I was 18 years old, I started to follow my passion for travelling. I lived in Spain, Bolivia, Senegal and Brazil and I travelled in many other countries. During these years I obtained a degree in Sociology at the University of Trento (Italy) and I worked in different continents as a social helper and tutor in contexts of backwardness. After many experiences, I decided to quit this job to pursue my career as a photographer. I develop my own projects and I work for assigment for local associations and NGOs. Since many years ago I started to collaborate with Codici, an important agency which develops Social Researches (www.codiciricerche.it). I also shoot for theater, for fashion, during weddings and social events. I'm  represented by LUZ photoagency (www.luz.it).
