My first public performance at the age of 6
I had a combined 10 years of classical piano training at the Liceo Musicale F. Cilea, and Accademia Musicale of Savona, and 3 years of jazz music at the Scuola Jazz di Quarto, GE. Also, I have perfect pitch. It allows me to play almost any songs on the piano by ear.
1978 I started playing in local bands.
In 1984 I recorded an album with the band F:A:R.:”Da Consumarsi Con Grazia”.
Afterward I spent 5 years playing keyboards with a band called Delta, and the following 5 years playing in piano bars around Italy with Mariano Maio (aka: “Simply Two”).
Starting in 1994, I worked in Milan for 5 years as a pianist, keyboard and back vocalist for Bravo Music & Business Agency. I was the accompanist for famous italian artists such as: Ivana Spagna, Luisa Corna, Franz di Cioccio (PFM), Jerry Calà, Franco Oppini, Sergio Vastano, Christian De Sica, Alba Parietti, Valeria Marini...
I collaborated as a midi song programmer for Edizioni Milano Publishing (publisher for several musical magazines throughout Europe).
In 2000 I started performing around the world aboard cruise ships, for Costa Cruise Line and (2002 - 2016) Norwegian Cruise Line.
