After his high school diploma at Istituto Statale d’Arte in 1978, he abandons the Accademia di Belle Arti of Torino to follow his vocation in drawing comics.
He begins to attend the Dami Studio in Milano, where he creates some illustrations published on “Grande Enciclopedia della Fantascienza”.
In 1980 he draws some stories for “1984”, a sci-fi comic magazine.
From 1981 to 1988, his work is divided between graphic advertising and short stories appearing on “Boy Music” by Rizzoli, “Edifumetto” comics published by Renzo Barbieri and on “Lancio Story”.
Collaborating with “Staff di If” comic artists team, he starts working with Sergio Bonelli Editore in 1988, when he draws the “Operazione Godzilla” story on the new quarterly series “Zona X”.
From then, in 1989, he gets in Martin Mystère’s comic artists team, drawing many complete stories.
In March 1996 he releases the “Prigioniero del futuro” special, a team-up between Martin Mystère and Nathan Never, followed by a second special in 2001 named “Il segreto di Altrove”.
His art is on the first issue of “Jonathan Steele”, a Sergio Bonelli Editore new character. He keeps working on it until series is canceled. Then he switches on “Nathan Never” series, first drawing a giant-size special named “Universi paralleli”, then working on single issues in the regular series.
From 2007, by Stefano Vietti scripts, he’s working regularly on “Dipartimento 51” inside series for the biannual title “Universo Alfa”
In 1998 he is one of the “Asti School of Comics” founders. He is still now teaching drawing in that school and also coordinating the Comics Laboratory activities, like the book “Musica e Nuvole”, which features stories inspired by famous singer-songwriter Paolo Conte.
