I'm a photographer and I've turned 30. I was born in a rocky old town in Italy, I grew up in an advertising agency and studied photography in Rome. I've searched my home on both shores of the Atlantic ocean, living in London, Brooklyn and Barcelona for a while. Today I’m based in Rome and Milan.

I'm specialized in portraits, industrial and architecture photography. Over the years I’ve collaborated with several Companies and Publications, such as Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Bureau Betak, Phaidon, IlSole24Ore, Wallpaper* City Guides, Icon España, Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Rome Film Festival. On June 2015 I've published my first book: Souvenir.

My images have been published by: Icon España, Wallpaper* City Guides, Phaidon, SKIRA, IlSole24Ore, Festival del Cinema di Roma, Frame Magazine, AD France, AD Mexico, Fondazione MAXXI, Università degli Studi di Cassino, Terre Rare, F-Stop Magazine, Landscape Stories, Dodho Magazine, Fotografia Magazine "Foto-Mobile", BeniCulturali 3.0, Architonic, Divisare, ArchiPortale, DesignFather, The Plus Paper, Contemporist, e-architect, Gessato, Instaura, DecoArq, 3/3, OggiAbbiamoCapitoChe.

In 2018 I have been selected as shortlisted photographer in the Professional Architecture category at the 2018 Sony World Photography Awards, thanks to my series "Mediterranean Sunset in Siponto". My personal projects have been exhibited at MAXXI Roma (Roma 2025 exhibition, Agri-Fab City project by IAAC, 2015), at Palazzo Fibbioni in L’Aquila (Personal exhibition, Distanza, 2015), Adriano Temple in Rome (Proiezioni, Piccolo Festival dell'Essenziale, 2014), Montecassino Abbey (visual installation, 2012), Domus Talenti in Rome (the History of Wine in Rome, 2010).
