I was born in Palermo on 13th June 1974. I graduated with the maximum grade in double bass in 1999 under the guide of Mo. F. Muzzi. In 2010 I obtained the Master degree in Jazz Music with Magna Cum Laude at the State Music Conservatory 'V. Bellini' of Palermo with a thesis entitled 'Musical syncretism in contemporary Jazz'. From 2010 until 2015 I taught electric bass at the State Music Conservatory 'V. Bellini' of Palermo and from 2011 until 2013 at the State Music Conservatory 'A. Corelli' of Messina. At the moment I teach at the State Music Conservatory ‘G. Rossini’ of Pesaro.

Ellington) under the direction of B. Russo. In 2006 the show 'La Scomparsa di Majorana', which was created by me, has been presented in premiere in Berlin at the 'Werkstatt Der Kulturen'. In 2007 I founded the Orchestra In-stabile DIS/accordo [O.I.D.] an ensemble of about 15 elements that improvise each performance following the 'conduction' technique.
