Bio

Grown up between Bastia and Toronto, I live and work in my natal city, Rome. 

From a start in black and white film photography, mainly street and reportage, I am now focusing on ink drawings and illustration. 

I have worked in the field of international relations, EU law, human rights, in socio-educational projects and as interpreter and translator.
