I was born in Milano, Italy, in 1975. I have always been fascinated by music theory, so I decided to study Musicology at Università di Pavia, where I graduated cum laude.

I have had a long experience in writing and producing music for video (commercials, movies, etc.), collaborating with composers, sound designers and instrumentalists. I also work as a consultant, choosing the best music for the client’s specific needs.

Besides, I pursue a more personal and intimate musical path, writing music for both traditional and electronic instruments. For a long time I have considered myself a “music nomad”, enjoying eclecticism and trying to explore as many different genres as I could. Lately I’m recognizing a fil rouge running through all my work, defining a style characterized by the love for essentiality, emotion, and need for narration.
