I started playing in punk and rock bands in the '80, then I studied classical music and wrote soundtracks
for theatre, documentaries and multimedia projects in Italy and in New York.
Later on I created and directed some multimedia works which included music, dance, acting and visual arts.
In 2007 I started to direct music videos, documentaries and shorts.
