I was born in Tokyo in 1988 to an Italian father and Japanese mother, both of whom were opera singers. I've spent my childhood between Italy and Japan; as a teenager, my family settled in Italy, my father’s homeland.

By nature curious and reserved, the camera was my preferred means of expression from a very early age. My art is strongly influenced by the cultural environment in which I was brought up. My artistic development has been influenced by many international professional photographers.

From 2015 I committed himself to social photographic projects and two years later joined the international organisation Shoot4Change.

In 2016 the project “The wood of memories” was presented in twelve solo exhibitions in Belgium, Italy and Japan gaining attention of European and American critics.

Although my primary interest is in social, commercial and fine art photography; I continue to nurture my love for the performing arts through works with musicians and theatre companies in Rome, Brussels and New York.

I'm currently based in Italy where I works as an independent professional photographer, documentarist and photography instructor.
