La scrittura è una malattia, che cura da vent’anni con tutto il giornalismo possibile: ha lavorato per due quotidiani, una televisione e mezza dozzina di riviste, guidato da direttore responsabile magazine e siti internet. Autore di un libro storico sul secondo dopoguerra e di un romanzo di narrativa, ama firmare reportage di viaggio ed è membro del Gruppo italiano stampa turistica. Si emoziona per un calice di Prosecco o per una alchimia di gusti nel piatto. Runner per passione, ha vissuto più maratone di quanto potesse sognare ma trova quiete solo correndo tra i monti e nelle note della moonlight sonata di Beethoven. Vive con Ketra, tre gatti e un cane zoppo. È il direttore di Storie di Eccellenza.
