I was born in Milan, but I grew up in Naples. In 1990 I started to study piano jazz in Rome, I lived there from 1997 till 2011 when I moved to London.
I started my music career in Rome playing in several bands, in some TV shows, and musicals. I was teaching music as well.
At one point though, I felt like if Italy was ‘stealing my time’… offering me just peanuts.
Someone called me to play as piano player and composer in a jazzy album in Abbey Road.
That was the time when I deeply felt that London could have been the town for me.
I love music but I am also a designer, so I love everything which has to do with images like videos, or sculptures.
Since I moved to London, I have been working as a film and ads composer as well.
In Italy, if you aren’t connected to the ‘right people’, it’s almost impossible to work in that field .
Here in London, I am commissioned to score for film and tv because people like my music… and that’s it!
I also find reading and travelling great sources of inspiration.
