Passionate about classical and modern literature, he approached the works of Russian writers (Dostoevskij and Tolstoj) and Americans (Hemingway, Kerouac, Fitzgerald and Bukowski).
He holds a Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering (University of Palermo) with an experimental thesis titled “PROGETTAZIONE E SVILUPPO DI UN APPLICATIVO PER LA DISTRIBUZIONE DELLE PUNTATE NELLE SCOMMESSE SPORTIVE” and subsequently he obtained the Master Degree cum Laude in Computer Engineering with an experimental thesis titled “A LIKINGS PREDICTION SYSTEM BASED ON SOCIAL NETWORK USERS AND ON DIGITAL IMAGES – An Application Based on Convolutional Neural Networks for Image Classification and on Support Vector Machines to Make Predictions on Users’ Likings“.
When he was a student he worked as a freelance developer and researcher in the fields of Web Application, Mobile Development and VPNs. In particular he deals with design, analysis and software optimization, administration and security of enterprise and private networks.

In December 2015 he released “Really Don’t Know” which contains demos written, performed and recorded at the age of fifteen.
After the release of “Really Don’t Know“, he studied music production, applying theories and techniques used by some of the most well known record producers (Bob Clearmountain, Warren Huart, Dave Pensado, Bruce Botnick, Bob Ludwig and Ian Shepard) about recording, editing, mixing and mastering.
“Chiara” is his first single, and has been released on all the digital stores in June 2017. “Tasting Roses” (the second track) is an electronic music experiment, dealt with by resampling, filtering and multiband compression of signals of the original song Chiara.
