I am an anthropologist based in Manchester UK, where I teach ethnographic documentary at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester. Before moving to Britain I studied anthropology and ethnomusicology in Milano, Italy, where I collaborated with the LEAV – Ethnomusicology and Visual Anthropology Lab at the University of Milan since its establishment in 2005. Here I developed my passion for photography and learned to shoot and edit video, in addition to various techniques of field sound recording. I can also serve as a graphic and web designer.
