My Bio
Born in dicemder the 21st 1982 in Milan, Italy.
I’ve always been interested in drawing and writing stories since I was a child. My fantasy grew a lot thanks to the Italian "Anime Boom" in the late '80s / early '90s, when hundreds of Japanese cartoons were broadcasted on TV. At the end of the Intermediate School (6th to 8th grade in US), I attended the Liceo Artistico A. Frattini (Art High School), in Varese.
In the summer of 1999 – between the 3rd and the 4th High School year – I saw the light: Comics. A friend of mine suggested me to see some Anime movies, such as Ghost in the Shell and Akira, and the TV series Neon Genesis Evangelion. In those years I started developing my drawing style and writing stories (which are only waiting to be published) I still continue.
In 2001 I got a diploma with good marks, but even before the end of High School I worked on some drawings for school text books, for Italian publishers like Bruno Mondadori and Principato.
In 2002 I met Greta, my kindred spirit, and my life has been pushed forward by a great positive force.
During 2004, I was bogged down in hundreds of ideas and projects, but then I saw the light again: my old passion for dinosaurs came back into me powerfully. During the summer of the same year I met the paleontologist Marco Signore, and we soon became friends and a fantastic work team in my first project, which begun in 2006: the "Dinosaurs" series, which tells the Mesozoic in six graphic novels published in Italy, USA, Japan, France, South Korea and Germany. This big project is finished after more than 4 years of work, and now I'm preparing to go on this difficult road.
