I was born in a little city near Milano in 1978 and I fell in love with photography at age 22. I received diploma in Professional Photography at the “Istituto Italiano di Fotografia” in 2002 and I worked as assistant in a Photography advertising studio in Milan.
In 2004, pushed by a deep passion for human conditions, I started to travel to the East Europe, Africa and the South America to document the activities of some Italian NGO’s working in those regions.
In 2009 I moved to Pakistan and I lived there until 2011. I worked for some international NGO’s to cover the water flood consequences of 2010 and on a project about the social and political situation of the country.
At the end of 2012 I moved to Jerusalem until June 2015. Here I collaborated with Corbis as a freelance news photographer covering daily issues in Israel and Palestinian Territories.
I currently based in Italy working on personal projects.
