I was born in Crotone, a small town located in southeastern Italy originally colonized by the Greek in 1984. I started to take pictures around age 13 and I never stop. The photos I took during my teen years were mostly self portraits.
My world changed when I started to read Pier Paolo Pasolini and when I saw Diane Arbus work for the first time. I still consider them my mentor. When I was 22 my father bought me my first digital camera and he told me 'use it like a weapon'. This is when I decided to take pictures of friends and lovers.
My heroes are people that instigated change. I do not trust people when they say 'I do not have any heroes I am my hero'. I think it is important to have heroes if for no other reason than at least you wont ever make the same mistakes they did.
I am also Yoga Teacher and in 2012 I founded 'Are You Ready to Yoga'.
