Born in Rome, 27th September 1969, my first contact with the guitar came at age 10, in the family environment in Milan.Whilst living in Milan, I played with the clarinetist Tony Scott, who worked with Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker and Bill Evans among 1,993 other artists.

Later, I moved to Chicago, and performed with local musicians at live Rhythm & Blues venues.

In 1994 I moved to Spain and continued collaborating in various stylistic areas such as: Tom Waits, Calexico, Boney M, Amparanoia, Kathy Autrey and Memory of the Blues. Meanwhile I recorded albums, performed on international tours across Europe and Latin America and produced music for films, theatre, dance and video art.
