I was born on April 15th, 1978 in Rome and Iíve started to play guitar at the beginning of 1995 immediately with an electric one. In late 2000 I started to record my first real solo album "Suspension" that I released by self in summer 2001. I had a lot of world distributors, including also M.A.C.E. music the personal label of guitarist Michael Angelo Batio. Suspension helped me to be less unknown between the instrumental shred/prog guitarists, infact I had a lot of reviews and interviews and I started to write guitar lessons for a lot of web-magazines. On May 2002 Chops From Hell released my first instructional CD-Rom based on Arpeggios, on January 2003 the second one called 'High Shred Techs' and on March 2004 the third one called 'Intese Guitar Playing'.
In the meantime Vitalij Kuprij asked me to partecipate with a guitar solo for his fourth solo album featuring apart from Vitalij also guitarists as Michael Romeo (Symphony X), George Bellas, Jeff Kollman, Roger Staffelbach (Artension), Borislav Mitic and Michael Harris.
At the beginning of 2005 I finished to record and produce my second solo album called "Forbidden Dimension". It includes great players as Kyle Honea on bass, Jon Doman on drums (tracked and engineered by Greg Howe at his personal studio), Vitalij Kuprij all piano and keyboards on one song and Bob Katsionis keyboards solos on 5 songs. The album is a shred/progessive influenced music and it was released by Lion Music on July 2005.
In middle 2005 I started to record my third solo album 'SECRETS WITHIN' it is divided into two sections, one heavy and one acoustic just to show better all my ideas, feelings and the way to consider music; I believe this album to be the best material I've ever released and the one that best represents me. 'INTO THE DARK LINE' is the heavy part of the album and is more into shred and progressive metal but with a lot of themes, melodies and unison passages, while the second part of the album 'OUT OF THE DARK LINE' is the acoustic one and it is only guitar and piano/keyboards and with more delicate melodies and some really introspective moments. I consider this album my best one also because I played with the best musician out there and I'm so lucky for that!
The album is out on Lion Music in middle 2007 and the CD contains extra material as photos, mp3, tabs, a diary of the making of and much more.
In the same time I recorded also some guest solos for other artistsí albums released by various labels as Brennus Records, Lion Music, Yamaha Music and Shrapnel Records.
