Graduated in Sport Science, I dreamed of becoming a professional athletic trainer to help young athletes realize their dreams, whichever sport they chose or art they would apply themselves to.
Day after day, I understood how mind and body are connected and inseparable, and therefore decided to pursue my other purpose in life: to support managers, entrepreneurs, artists and anybody who desires to improve their health in order to achieve a higher potential towards their goals.
Art in all its forms is a result of a creative mind and an interpretative body: the world of dance has been my field of experimentation; I then approached the world of music with great enthusiasm.
To be fine-tuned with your body is the premise for the external realization of inner creativity.
