He studied singing at the Conservatory of Music "Francesco Morlacchi" in Perugia (Italy), where he also attended the composition course for two years. The study of singing was always accompanied by a deepening in contemporary music (both singing and composing), ranging from pop to metal and facing different styles and techniques. Always keeping "one foot on the stage", he began to collaborate with artistic representation agencies as a manager for opera singers and an opera production consultant. Eventually the call of singing grew stronger and he decided to go back to being a full-time artist.
