ABOUT ME

 

Born in Sardinia, now I live in San Pantaleo (up the hills between Costa Smeralda and La Maddalena Archipelago), from my veranda I can see La Maddalena Archipelago and I really love it ! 

Many years ago I’ve spent 10 months of my life in Santo Stefano Island (one of the archipelago) when I was a Sergent of the N.A.T.O. base during the military service, nowadays I come back as a guide with pleasure !

I'm the company founder and I speak Italian and English.

 

 

 

MY JOB

 

I’m a certified outdoor guide and sea-kayak coach, I began in 2004 as hiking guide and few years later as kayak guide.

Between 2004 and 2018 I’ve run over 2000 excursions (land based and sea kayaking) and I still have strong passion for my job.

I also work as educator of sustainable tourism and ecotourism.
