I was born in Crotone, a small town located in the deepest south of Italy, in 1984. At the age of 18 I moved to Bologna to study, in order, Political Science, Literature and Philosophy, and Art. I didn't graduate in any of them. After my disastrous university experience, I moved to New York to study photography. In 2014 I published my debut novel, "Amodio", the story of a young homosexual boxer, son of a ‘ndrangheta boss, set in the south of Italy. The Huffington Post listed the the novel as a "necessary book". In 2016 I published my second novel, "Fondo Gesù".
