I grew up in Milan, Italy, where I completed veterinary school and a Ph.D. in science of prenatal development and fetal surgery, using sheep as an animal model. I always loved medicine and animals so I thought that veterinary medicine would be ideal for me. After school, I moved for one year to the University of Florida for a research fellowship. That experience changed my perspective of veterinary medicine.

I was really impressed with the high level of care provided to pets in the United States, so I decided to apply for an internship. I was lucky enough to get a position at Oregon State University. The following year I applied for a surgery residency and I matched at Colorado State University.  In those three years, I discovered my interest for surgical oncology and attained a position at the Flint Animal Cancer Center as a surgical oncology fellow. I spent last year learning how to approach different types of cancer in the most effective way (surgical treatment, radiation therapy or chemotherapy) to be able to help my patients and their families to spend as much quality time as possible with their loved ones.

From September 2021 to December 2022, I worked at Ohio State University as a clinical assistant professor. In that time, I also earned the designation of a Diplomate of European College of Veterinary Surgeons (DECVS), meaning I’m recognized as a specialist by the European Board of Veterinary Specialization.

In December 2022, I came back to Colorado State University to work as a clinical assistant professor. I love being back in the state of Colorado and teaching surgical techniques to future veterinary oncologists.

Outside work I like hiking, skiing, and obviously playing soccer. I have also discovered how delicious IPA beers are (Odell’s beer especially). I am the proud dad of a cute French Bulldog, Giacomo, that I adopted after he was surrendered due to a congenital heart defect.
