Born in Milan, after graduating in Fashion Marketing from St Martins School in London, I started working for Contrasto Photo Agency in Milano.
In 2004 I moved to Grazia Neri’s Photo Agency, where I represented several international agencies and photographers and I selected new photographers for the Agency.
In 2008 I went to New York to work as the agent of documentary photographer Donna Ferrato and representing Grazia Neri’s photographers all through the US, while collaborating with the major publications. On returning to Milano, I started my own Agency: DB where I represent a few selected documentary, fashion, interior photographers, film directors, video makers and illustrators for advertising, fashion and editorial projects.
In these years, I have been invited as a portfolio reviewer to many Festivals like, Les Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles, Format Festival and as a member part of the Jury for several Photography Awards and as a nominator for the Prix Pictet and British Journal of Photography Ones To Watch.
I have been a tutor on “the Flying Course” with Stanley Greene in Paris and at “Love Venetian Style: an Intimate View” with Donna Ferrato in Venice workshops.
My lecture: “Using skills of documentary photography in corporate and advertising fields” has been hosted in several cities in Italy and abroad.
Beside my own business, I teach visual communication and I am a mentor for Eyes in Progress.
