Facts and Interests

  • After leaving home at 19, a combination of fortunate events—including winning a sports bet and receiving academic scholarships—enabled me to travel, live, and work in Rome, Helsinki, and England before permanently relocating to the United Kingdom in 2008.

  • I have been a meditator for years and have spent considerable amounts of time with Eastern spiritual leaders and practitioners that have exposed me to the teachings of Buddhism, Hinduism, Mysticism, the Yogic Science.
  • In my younger years, my aspiration was to become a professional footballer. I spent considerable time training and playing for the youth team of AC Tricase, participating in the Italian Serie C league.
  • I have a competitive streak in go-kart racing, a passion inspired by my father, a local rally car racer and enthusiast. Most of my youth was spent on racing tracks.
  • More than a decade ago, I stumbled upon salsa dancing. Although I never pursued it professionally, the music immediately felt like second nature to me. A friend introduced me to a close-knit community of high-level dancers in London, which has become my go-to activity for re-energizing.
  • I have logged hundreds of hours training as a comedy improviser and have performed in various small theaters throughout London.
  • Contrary to the typical Italian stereotype, I don't enjoy cooking. Instead, I prefer engaging in meaningful conversations with my guests.
  • I possess a discerning eye for art, beauty, and balance, along with a deep appreciation for classical music.
  • One of my favorite Italian films is 'The Great Beauty' by Paolo Sorrentino. I am drawn to its multi-layered meanings and the powerful use of silence throughout the film.
