About Me

I am a portrait and commercial photographer who loves working with people covering assignments worldwide. 

My friends say that I just can't stop. Let's say, I find it easy to keep myself occupied. The world is made to be discovered and my camera lets me get in touch with everything I come across. I like to interact with people, make them smile and learn from them. I am an observer of humankind and I engage in learning people's stories from around the world. I have a worldmap tattooed on my back - a note to myself: never give up pursuing your dreams! 

I am currently working on a personal project about derelict places. I gravitate towards elapsed histories; histories of everyday life as time colludes with nature to rewrite these memories afresh. Abandon overwrites social difference as ivy wraps sumptuous palaces and shacks alikeand dust covers them all. 

When I don't click on assignment, you can find me cultivating my other passions: scuba diving, swimming, long walks in the park, art events, a pleasant dinner with my friends... or I'll probably be nurturing my addiction for earrings choosing a new pair.

I speak English, French, Italian and Spanish, so if you're sitting next to me on the tube or on the bus, beware, I'll probably start chatting with you... and if you still don't understand me, I'll try gesticulating: I'm Italian, it's in my DNA!
