I was born and raised in Italy, and after a few years of wanderlust travels and living and working in different parts of the world, I relocated to the central coast of California.
I have been practicing Martial Arts since I was a kid, and this passion and honest quest for a better way to prepare specifically for self-defense brought be to discover Blauer Tactical System. I became a Personal Defense Readiness Instructor in 2007.
I was exposed to Rob Pincus' research and Combat Focus Shooting through my work, and became a Combat Focus Shooting Instructor in April of 2010. In September 2011, I took another step forward and became a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer.
I started my training company, Safer Faster Defense, in 2011 with the goal to educate civilians with the knowledge, mindset, and tools to help them stay safe and to prepare them to prevail in dangerous situations they may encounter.
In the same year I finished to develop Safer Faster Knife Defense to provide a simple and intuitive training program that will quickly make the student more efficient in deploying and using a knife in a modern defensive context. This program is designed to instill the proper mindset to empower the student to manage fear and apply the skills learned in the event of a lethal threat.
