I was born in Palestrina on 11 June 1988
On Christmas of 2010 I got the most coveted gift: the first Nikon reflex.
I began studying photography by mymself, but being always fascinated by reportage I decided to sign up a photojournalist class, in order to add an important task to my personal formation continuously enriched.

I am extremely in love with nature photography and outdoor sports.
I love spending a lot of my time in nature, sometimes my photographic travels lead me to stay many days in places difficult to reach and inhospitable.
