I was born in Italy in 1988 and while still really young I was fascinated by movement and body challenge.... every day after school I used to secretly spying the gymnastics lessons of the school gymnasium.. till the day, I was 6, I asked my mum to subscribe me to that gymnastics club.

I practices rhythmic gymnastics for four years till the day a ballet teacher came to train us to be more graceful...from that day I fell in love with ballet dance so I quit gymnastics and I entered the ballet conservatory of my city where I studied till the age of 18.

After so many years of rigorous discipline and personality reset to zero by the good behavior of the ballet dancer I felt it was time to open my artistic knowledges to something new for me.... contemporary dance.

At the age of 19 I joined the Junior Ballet of Geneva and two years later I continued my training at Zappalà professional dance school 'Modem Atelier', in Sicily.​

While studying in Sicily I could assist to a dance show of Wim Vandekeybus and, fascinated by the Belgian artistic current, I decided, once graduated, to move out of Italy to explore the north-european movement of contemporary dance... so I left Italy in direction of Brussels.

Here, while training with many international choreographers and teachers, I worked with the belgian‐greek Krama Dance Company, Natalia Vallebona (Poetic Punkers collective), RoyAssaf (for Biennale di Venezia 2014) ,

Roberto Zappalà, Dorian Chavez and lately with the belgian choreographer Lies Serdons.​

Besides my dance activity I've developed over the years a need to create, to turn my thoughts into choreography.

Until today I made three personal creations which have been supported by several Belgian theaters.

Alongside my activity as choreographer and dancer, I love to shares my artistic experience by teaching contemporary dance  and improvisation inspired by the Gaga methodic which I have been following for several years.
