In 1958 and 1959, he drew the masked character 'Ariol' for publisher Ezio Borghesi. During the 1960s, he worked as a cartoonist for newspapers from Genoa. In 1974, he became an inker at the Staff di If, and took over 'Qui Commissario Norton' in Il Monello. In 1975, he briefly inked 'Davy Crockett' for Edinational. After inking several episodes of Wilson Vieira's 'Il Piccolo Ranger' (1980-82), he went to work for Telefumetto, inking 'Remy' and 'Golzinga'. In 1982 and 1983, he wrote and drew 'Arako', published by Lo Vecchio.
