I am a PhD student in Composition and Theory at The University of Pittsburgh. Previously, I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Composition at the S. Cecilia Conservatory of Music of Rome, Italy, and I received my Master of Music in Composition at the Syracuse University, NY. I also attended a workshop in England led by Simon Bainbridge and several seminars led by important composers: Gubajdulina, Luis de Pablo, David Liptak, Robert Paterson among the others. I was commissioned to participate as a composer in several Music Festivals in Italy and in the USA, and my music has been performed in England, Italy, and the USA. BYICAA , sponsor of “Welcome to CHINA 2016”, recently selected my artwork for publication through their social networks and introduced it to the Chinese art field. I am recipient of the Brian Israel Award and the 2015 Master Prize Award at Syracuse University and am a member of Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society.
