was born and raised by Italian parents in Zurich, Switzerland.


At the age of seven he discovered his passion for dance, and since then have dedicated himself to a career as a professional ballet dancer. Through dancing he also developed an eye for aesthetic and beauty. Whether in everyday life, in the studio or onstage, he found himself constantly surrounded by beauty - beauty that he could work out with the help of a camera. Fascinated by the prospect of using photography as a means to open up the mind and heart to the environment around, he began to photograph all things that inspired or spoke to him. After thirteen years with Hamburg Ballet – John Neumeier, where he danced as a soloist, he retired from stage in 2015.


Since then he works as a freelance photographer in the field of Portrait, People, Lifestyle, Sport, Architecture and especially in Ballet- and Theatre Photography for clients like the ›Bavarian State Ballet‹, the Hamburg Ballet School and the ›National Youth Ballet of Germany- John Neumeier‹ as well as for ›Reebok/Germany‹ ›Wella/Germany‹ ›Remy Cointreau‹ ›LONGINES‹ and ›Children For Tomorrow Foundation‹ by Stefanie Graf. 

Also the ›Hamburg Tourism‹ ›‹ and ›BMW Group Culture‹ are included to his customers.
