I began my journey from corporate healthcare executive to artist during the pandemic. I'm from NYC and I have always loved music. I grew up in an Italian family with roots in the city, and I immersed myself in classic 70s and 80s bands like Motley Crue, Kiss, Prince and Twisted Sister. I played in bands, sang and played drums all throughout my growing up years. Normally I travel a lot with my work in healthcare administration, but lockdown kept me stuck at home. With more time on my hands, started creating one-of-kind art pieces that celebrate some of my favorite artists. Music is a transformative medium, and my passion is capturing the transformative moments in musical history. It's challenging, tedious and exhilarating to see these pieces slowly come to life, one guitar pick at a time. I was humbled when galleries started reaching out. I'm particularly proud that the Alice Cooper piece I donated to the artist's Christmas Pudding fundraiser last year brought in $120,000 for his charity, the highest bid ever for the event! My work can be found in select galleries and by commission, so reach out if you'd like to learn more.
