Born in Umbria, Italy I started photography with some experiences in Toronto , Canada and from 1992 in Vienna. I began frequent travel to the East and I was based for six years in Sydney, Australia. From year 2000 I started to work focusing in China and more precisely Shanghai. After many assignments and features, I decided to relocate to Shanghai in 2005.
I have been represented by the Anzenberger Agency since 1992.
I am currently based in Shanghai but working in many locations in Asia, mainly under assignment to editorial, corporate and portrait projects.
