I was born and raised in the suburbs of Catania, Sicily, Italy. Since I was a child, I have been involved in the sports world. In 1992, I was an Italian Greco-Roman wrestler with the utmost passion for wrestling that earned me many trophies and medals during the early 90’s. In 1995, I won the finals at the ” Men’s Greco-Roman Championship in Rome, Italy” and received a gold medal. After one year, I had an accident during a fight in Rome that took me out of the sport. After a few weeks, I recovered but my knee ligament tissue got weaker due to all the fights he had during his career, whereby the doctor refused me to stay in the ring. It was quite a setback for me and his family that all of sudden everything changed in his life. After some time, I decided to move on because life does not stop with these such incidents but is full of events and contingency plans. I realized that sooner or later I had to change myself and adapt to my new surroundings. I was physically fit and my friend referred me to join a gym together. I started working out and within weeks got a complete passion for it. My love for sports and health lead me to become a certified personal trainer. I have continued as a professional personal trainer for many years. I opened in Italy my own gym and a supplements store. In 2012 during a vacation in Manhattan, NY he was watching a comedy show at a public theater of Central Park. This awoke an excitement inside of me that I was carrying for long time. That day I realized my lust for acting and this is when I decided to pursue a new career path. When I returned to Italy from my vacation, I sold my gym and the supplements store. I made a plan to go back to New York to work there as personal trainer. I started to get information to become an actor and it was recommended that I move to Los Angeles. I moved to the center of the nation’s film and television industry, the City of Los Angeles, California, and started to find a suitable acting school to begin my journey. With the same passion and enthusiasm I have exuded my whole life, I worked day and night to make my dream come true. I have appeared in feature films, commercials, documentaries and television series. I still live in Los Angeles and I am actively pursuing a career in films.
I love to exercise everyday. I love to follow my commitment to nutrition and wake up at 7 :00 am each morning even as a young boy. I think self-discipline is the key to living a better life and getting what we want in life!
Self-Discipline is essential in our life!
The passion for cooking!
The Joys of Growing Up In an Italian Family
Growing up in an Italian family is one of the things I am most grateful for in my life.
I always loved watching my mom and my Grandma cook and help them, especially during the holidays when we used to gather with all my relatives at my house. I learned how to cook at age 10, and enjoyed learning the family’s traditional recipes. Italian traditional cooking. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a house where my mom cook two times a day.
