I started at 2 years old. My very first concert was at the age 7. I started with jazz and fusion gigs. Some of my most important concerts where to Blue note (Milan - New York), Kennedy Center in Washington and I was the only Italian band leader that played for the Olympic Games in London in 2012. After my college experience at Berklee college Of Music (Boston 2015 - 2017), I started working as a touring, session and recording drummer.

Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceA memorable moment for me was the first Tour Concert that I did in front 15.000 people in LA. At the beginning of the whole concert, my mind was in another dimension, my hands shaken but I grabbed my sticks and I did my best. That was a new beginning of my life and drumming, an exciting moment that I'll never forget.
