I have lived seven lives like cats and maybe even more, but nevertheless I am incredibly alive.
I have been lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and to be able to travel a lot, thanks to what has been my job as a tattoo artist for so many years.
I then had the misfortune to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and there I lost everything I had, saving only the few things I cared about, including musical instruments, thanks to some friends.
But although they were hard years and I also lived on the street and without a roof over my head, they were intense years, which gave me much more on a human level than I had had before and this helped me a lot and thanks to music it saved my life.
At some point I found a very unique person, to whom I owe everything and who believes in me, in my crazy visionary dreams and in what I want to achieve, and I honestly don't know how she does it.
But thanks to her, I am still here and writing these things.
I started playing bass in 1985 at the age of 14 and after two years I started playing guitar, which then became my main instrument, playing in various bands, mainly rock and thrash metal.
In 2002 I stopped playing due to problems with my left hand, which I still carry with me to this day.
In 2012 I started playing again and took up the piano, and then resumed playing the bass and guitar, despite my hand problems.
At a certain point, tired of what had been my job and artistic path in body art for over 20 years, I decided to devote myself totally to music, and thanks to my training and study of music, I decided to explore and experiment, composing in a variety of musical genres and starting to sell my tracks on various sites.
And now I have landed here too, ready to play my cards with this umpteenth bet, which I will win, as always, thanks to my passion and dedication.
I played live several times, especially between the 80s and 90s, but it was never a dimension that made me feel really comfortable, although I had a lot of fun at the time.
The last time was at the end of 2014, when I played as a guitarist for a really interesting and wide-ranging trap music project, but even then it was really stressful, as it was in an ice rink and it was ridiculously cold.
From then on I decided to devote myself solely to studio work, collaborating with various artists, but turning down any proposal to play live.
I have so many musical influences, starting with 70s progressive rock from childhood, moving on to 70s English punk, metal, but especially extreme metal, like black metal.
I also listen to a lot of new wave, darkwave, post punk and synth pop, and for a few years now I have become very interested in ethnic music and hip hop.
