Career History: I started playing guitar at the age of 19. I’ve studied guitar all by my self learning and studying the songs of my favourite bands. After 4 years I started to study guitar with Livio Lamonea but this only for 1 year, then I’ve continued alone on my path.
I met Dario in 1999 and we founded MIND KEY.
