About Me

Freelance Live FOH Sound Engineer

I'm an Italian freelance Sound Engineer based in the North-East of Italy with over 13 years of experience in live sound. Over these years I've been responsible for the sound of both big and emerging artists, in many music contexts ranging from jazz, pop, rock to heavy metal shows, working either for sound companies and production companies.

Through the years I’ve heightened my skills in different fields of live events, working as Foh Engineer for Theatre Shows and Musicals. My experience also includes Operas and Rock-Opera shows, in which I gained an accurate knowledge in treating classical orchestras and ensemble.

I've had the opportunity to work as Sound Designer and Sound Engineer at many corporate events, such as company meetings, gala dinners, fashion shows and industrial presentations, for several well-known companies.

From these years of work I’ve gained a high competence in the sound reinforcement field, working primarily with Nexo and d&b Audiotechnik systems. On this subject, I've been employed as Sound Designer and Responsible for a number of live shows, tours, music festivals and corporate events.
