Born and raised in Italy, he started on guitar at age 7, switched to banjo at 11, and now, at 23, he's played pretty much every major roots music venue in Europe, plus the IBMA Convention in Raleigh, NC with traditional bluegrass band Travers Chandler & Avery County, filling in for the legendary Butch Robins.

He's a "resident expert" for old-school american music in Europe, including bluegrass, western swing, hillbilly, old time, country music and early rockabilly, and is a requested session musician in the studio.
