Sono nato a Roma e vivo in Umbria da 20 anni, nel piccolo paese di Fossato di Vico nel Parco del Monte Cucco in provincia di Perugia. Sono un architetto, ed una guida escursionistica, credo in uno modello di sviluppo economico turistico anche in zone fuori dal turismo di massa.
Mi piacciono le cose semplici e la vita a contatto con la natura, camminare, il cibo naturale e un buon bicchiere di vino.
