From 2016 he has been involved with an intense live activity with his acoustic duo (the other member is Niccolò De Santis).
In 2018 he awarded a “bachelor of arts” degree in audio production at SAE institute, which leads him to work in Italy as sound technician.
During 2020 he worked for ‘Costa Crociere’ the main Italian cruise company where he met Simone Celi that convinced him to enter the world of production with his first electronic music single, “Dream".
