During her childhood she comes in contact with the world of analogic photography thanks to her father’s Olympus OM-2, with which she takes her first steps into photography. She begins to use this equipment autonomously at 10 year old and finally buys her first reflex camera at the age of fifteen: the Nikon F-65. It’s whith this camera that she makes her first photo services in the most important and big musical festivals and lives in Italy. Having to pass to a digital camera, her first choice was a Nikon D3000, then a Nikon D299 and finally the Nikon's top product, the Nikon D3. Thanks to this camera, she continued shooting in the most different and varied live music feasts, and has expanded her limits: together with live music photography, she now works on model portfolios, portraits, landscapes and still life as well.
