Introduced very early into the Ordo Aurum Solis, in 2003 de Biasi became the tenth Lifetime Grand Master. He is also in charge as Reverend of the religious expression of the Hermetic tradition called Ecclesia Ogdoadica.

He is also the Grand Patriarch in charge of the Ordre Kabbalistique de la Rose-Croix (the Kabbalistic Order of the Rose-Cross, O.K.R.C.)

He was initiated into Freemasonry and raised in 1992. He is a 32° Scottish Rite Freemason, Southern Jurisdiction, U.S., F.G.C.R., Royal Arch Mason. He is a specialist of Masonic Rituals and Esoteric Freemasonry.
