He was born in sunny Sardinia, in Cagliari.
In 2014, he is awarded a Scholarship by Save the Children to enrol in one of Social Change School Master Programmes. He chooses MES – Master in Social Innovation, Social Business, Start up Social and Innovative Design – he is fascinated by Social Innovation and the wide range of possibilities offered by Social Business. That same year he started his own business as a Social Media Manager and Digital Strategist collaborating with a series of NGOs and Cooperatives, at first only in Sardinia and then in the whole of Italy, which was motivated by the course he started.
In December 2014, he begun his adventure with Social Change School.
Thanks to the competences acquired during the Master, he started an Internship in Save the Children, in April 2015.
He formally began his online activity as forum moderator in 2009, right after his high school graduation. He took up Economics in University, but soon he realized that was not his field. In 2012, he enrolled in International and Social Relations, and studying Sociology he began to understand what he wanted to do with his life.
In that same year, he started to be a volunteer in Save the Children in Cagliari and in August 2013 he collaborated with the Policy & Law unit as Social Media Manager. He immediately realized that he wanted to be in the Non Profit Sector.
He is rational and pragmatic, but he is also creative and loves experimenting. Since he was a child, he has been fond of technology and IT in general.
He loves sports: football, boxing and basketball.
