Biography

I was born in Sardinia, Italy, where I grew up with a passion for rock and blues.  From an early age I was fascinated by the sound of the Hammond Organ, and as a youngster taught myself how to play the great Jon Lord’s parts from “Made in Japan” by Deep Purple. 
Alongside my passion for blues and rock I learnt to play the accordion and was a member of several folk bands with whom I recorded a number of albums.
 
After years of collaboration with various band and artists in Italy I decided that it was time to move on and arrived in London in 2004. Here I obtained a first class BA Honours degree in Jazz Piano under the wings of great teachers and musicians such as Nikki Iles, Chris Batchelor and Rob Townsend at Middlesex University.
 
Since being in London I have worked with a broad selection of jazz, blues and pop artists and enjoy participating in a varied range of projects with different performers both in the recording studio and in renowned live music venues such as Jazz Cafe', The Borderline, The Hideaway, Blues Sphere and various festivals in Europe.
 
My passion and attraction to the vintage aspects of musical instruments brought me to specialise in vintage keyboards such as Hammond Organ, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinet, Pianet and synthesizer as well as acoustic piano.
 
I am currently a member of The Paul Garner Band, Crowd Company, GoGo, OST, BadGirlsGroove and Reuben Richard and the Soul Train.
 
Also, since 2010, I have been working as a visiting lecturer at the music department of West Kent-College, Tonbridge, where I gained a diploma in teaching (DTLSS).
