Bio

As a pianist and keyboards player I’ve been joining local bands performing different genres (pop, latin, fusion, contemporary jazz) since the mid ‘90 in the Venice (Italy) area. I had the chance to be featured in many festivals (Ubi Jazz, Veneto Jazz, Venice Jazz Festival among others) and local venues.

I published several records, both as a solo artist and as a sideman. A track from my record “Morning” (genre: jazz fusion) has been chosen among many to be featured in the sampler CD sold with the U.S. magazine JAZZIZ (2012). Two years later a track from the record “Home” (genre: contemporary jazz) was featured on another issue of the same magazine.

In 2002 I had a scholarship to attend the Berklee Summer School at Umbria Jazz (Perugia, Italy) having the chance to study with teachers from the Berklee Jazz faculty (Larry Monroe, Mark White, Jeff Stout, etc.). In March 2016 I graduated summa cum laude in Jazz Piano at the Conservatory of Venice and received the Peggy Guetta Finzi grant, given for the first time to Jazz students of the Conservatory.

Since 2012 I’ve been composing music for video productions and commercials; more recently I’ve been writing and producing several soundtracks for short movies and videogames (UK, France, Italy).

support

In order to ensure economic support for myself and my family I have a dayjob which absorbs most of my time and energy. What remains for my music activities is a tiny amount of hours per week, usually at night.
A Patreon - Angel Donor could help me reaching as soon as possible my ultimate goal: leave my dayjob and spend my time performing, producing and teaching music.
