I don’t know how different it is to write your own bio, but like everything else I do in life or music, I follow my instincts. Music has always been about passion. Whether it’s playing with my band or doing solo gigs, what I do is about the people and my passion.
I was born in Rome, Italy in 1966 and then my family moved to Rochester, NY when I was two. At the age of five, I began singing and playing the piano and discovered that doing both at the same time felt really natural to me.
From the ages 10 to 18, I took lessons at the Eastman School of Music as well as lessons from local jazz greats such as Fred Costello and Joey Santora (Cabo Frio). My first band was formed at age 14, and I have been in one ever since. I also played a lot of classical, pop, rock, Latin, and jazz tunes over the years with other great musicians.
I currently have a family, which truly inspires me to be the best version of myself I can be. They are my rock and inspiration.
