Born in 1972, as a teenager I began to print by myself as a self-taught.​

In 2017 I joined a local photo club, I began to frequent the Italian Center of Art Photography (CIFA) and I became a member of Fiaf (Italian Federation of Photographic Associations). I began my journey, accompained by the study of photography and its story, focusing on social dynamics.
