He graduated from the department of technique of radio and television in the University of Rome (Roma 3), focusing on electronic music and music videos, with a final monographic work about Chris Cunningham, under the mentorship of professor Carlo Freccero, well-known director and advisor for Italian and French television.
After his studies he moved to Barcelona, where he acquired years of experience in music studio alongside with further training courses in electronic music, advertising and communication. In addition, he was an editor-in-chief of a monographic magazine about art and creativity (Mom bookazine).
Following period he dedicated to exploration trips, continuing his works on electronic music with a portable studio set that he keeps updating with a funny selection of pocket synthesisers. He also focused on field recording, founding the web project Field Abuse and producing several releases for independent labels (Impulsive Habitat, Green Field Recording, Earwitness).
Between 2013 and 2015 he worked as a sound technician and music composer in a filming crew for an independent television series (Wind and Water). In 2015 he exhibited his videos and field recordings in Singapore together with a local artist (Market Place).
He’s co-admin of London/Rome-based electronic music network Brainstormlab.org.
His year long-stay in Cairo between 2015 and 2016 enabled him to focus on new field recordings and composing alongside developing existing work. As a result several new solo projects as well as collaborations with local artists and cultural initiatives were created and presented in various venues in Cairo and Alexandria and outside Egypt (Hands on Synesthesia, Electronic Wasla).
He is currently based in Italy and continues his artistic path.
