Studied in Italy and Germany, and worked as a dancer and choreographer for 25 years.
In his career as a dancer, he has always striven greater flexibility and balance in space. Over the years, the physical problems encountered and the solutions have become increasingly refined and sophisticated, opening up new areas and perspectives.
In 2000 he began the Shiatsu training (third level) and integrated it with Rolfing®, becoming certified in 2014 as Advanced Rolfer ™, and the Gyrotonic Expansion System®.
From 2018 he is a member of the Faculty of European Rolf Movement.
Giving expression and form to the creative intelligence present in our bodies is my fundamental inspiration in life.
