I am a self-taught ornithologist, International Mountain Leader. A nature lover, I have worked in a Nature Park for about twenty-five years.



I have been lucky in the experiences in my life and they have taught me that there are two things that interest me most of all, the emotions that only nature can offer and sharing them with people who value them.

Hiking in nature allows us to enjoy the magnificent scenery or to get a coveted destination. But if we want to understand better what surrounds us, the environment can reveal us many secrets, telling ancient stories that have influenced landforms, vegetation and fauna that we see today around us.
The discovery of a territory in which live thousands of forms of life, often well hidden to our senses, is always a source of strong emotions.

Would you like to travel for birdwatching and to discover different landscapes, environments and cultures? During the trips that I organize the interests in ornithological and nature aspects is always accompanied by cultural curiosity and the understanding of how human activities have had an influence on the environments and species, as well as they have been affected. Everything in nature is part of a neverending story.
