Hello, I am 59 years old, I am the chief surgeon of a hospital in northern Italy. I love animals and I have a pug, a great dane, two maine coon and a ragdoll. As a kid I started to get excited about modeling, but since the university I have not been able to find the time for my hobby. From a a couple of years, during a period of illness, I started again, with considerable enthusiasm to devote myself to modeling. You can see my works also on Instagram at #surgeonmodeler
