Since 2009 resident saxophone teacher in Hampton Court House, Surrey. Visiting lecturer at Goldsmith College and Westminster University.

Born in Trieste, Italy, in 1968. Attended classical studies at the Music Academy “G. Tartini”. After several experiences in theatre and classic music, developed a strong interest in jazz in 1985.

After a theatre season as a stage musician in 1988 with “Veneto Teatro”, in 1990, I moved to Florence where I could work across a wider variety of music, ranging from jazz to ethnic, to rock and fusion. I had also started my career as a saxophone teacher at the Music Academy.

During those years I also played with many bands and musicians including the Michael Allen Band, “Grand Wazoo Orchestra”, Leonardo Pieri’s “Lo squalo giallo” (The Yellow Shark), Stefano Bollani and more.

Baritone sax player with the OFP Orchestra S.Lazzaro in Bologna, directed, amongst the others, by Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Steve Coleman and Bruno Tommaso. I have been involved in gigs with italian TV artists, advertisement jingles and the resident band at the Forte Village Resort in Sardinia.

I have also played, arranged and produced several records, including a solo album, which was released in 1998 and obtained extremely favourable international reviews.

In 1995, MA in Political Studies at the University of Florence.

During the last years, I have taken part in numerous studio sessions playing flute, clarinets and trombone too. Also I consistently work as a producer as well as a wide range of solo projects.
