More Info
I am originally from Rome, Italy. I was born under the sign of Cancer on a hot summer day on June 29, 1983, which makes me almost 26 years old. I lived in my motherland until I was 19. That’s when I decided to take off and later landed in the States with the weirdest idea of carrying on the family tradition to study medicine at the University of Colorado at Boulder, a hippie town in the Rocky Mountains known for its Sport Medicine undergraduate program and its Rock Climbing.

Four years later I graduated with a PreMed degree in Integrative Physiology (The science that studies your body’s functions during exercise). Shortly after I discovered I liked writing much better than working in a dark, cold laboratory all day doing experiments on the brain immune system of rats in response to stress. So I followed my “gut feelings” and applied to be an editorial intern in one of the local outdoors magazines. Few weeks after graduation I was on my way to Carbondale, Colorado in the mountain range, ready to start off my career as an unpaid intern for Climbing magazine.

Little did I know I would continue freelancing for Climbing still today. But, what can I say: I love the mag and the people who run it and I am always out pushing my limits as a climber, so why not report my adventures and other's on paper so that everyone can read them :)

I like to finish off by saying I climb to push over the limits of my human mind, I don't only climb because I like fighting gravity and win, I climb because I LOVE fighting my fears MORE, even if I do not always win those. Just knowing I tried to, is a GREAT fulfilling feeling and it's what gives me the strength to continue climbing.
