I grew up in small town at the feet of the mountains of northern Italy, somewhere between Milan and Venice.
After moving to Australia in 2013 to pursue my doctorate in Astrophysics, I quickly became really passionate about surfboard design and manufacturing, which is something that has always captured my interest.
So in 2014 I began my journey and started to make the first surfboards in a small shed falling apart somewhere in the bush behind Bells Beach.
Over the years I had the luck to work as a contract glasser and learn from several local world-class shapers and craftsmen, including Maurice Cole, Shyama Buttonshaw and Cory Russel, amongst others. 
I have always tried to focus on balanced, well tuned and user friendly designs, coupled with high quality glassing and clean aesthetics. I tend to pursue designs that I find interesting and personally enjoy riding, as well as learning from and working with other surfers to share the experience and make the best boards I can.
