Born in Putignano (Italy) in 1983, I trained with Annalisa Bellini in Castellana Grotte. A the age of 18, I joined the Scuola del Balletto di Toscana run by Cristina Bozzolini. My contemporary dance training was perfected under Samuele Cardini in Florence. At 22, I was selected for D.A.N.C.E, the European dance training and professional insertion scheme run by William Forsythe, Frédéric Flamand, Wayne McGregor and Angelin Preljocaj. I joined the Ballet National de Marseille in 2007. Along my career of dancer, I have developed my own choreographic work with Angel Martinez Hernandez. Together, we received in 2007 an award at the Certamen Coreografico Internacional of Madrid for In2, short play integrated in the Cartes Blanches to the BNM dancers.
