“They’re alike in their improvisation and their spontaneousness. They happen at the same moment that you’re hearing something and you’re seeing something, and you record it, and it’s frozen forever!” (William Claxton)

Born in Sant’Elpidio a Mare (FM) and a resident of Morrovalle (MC), a lover of jazz music and photography, being able to unite both in harmony and immortalizing musicians performing on and off stage bringing out all of their state of mind.
