Born and raised in Naples, when I turned 19 I decided that time had come to pursuit my destiny, so I moved to Rome to attend Film Director classes at the New University of Cinema and Television in Cinecittà.

 

Upon my Diploma, while enduring my early experiences as a newbie in the Film Industry, I enrolled at Roma Tre University, receiving in 2009 a Summa Cum Laude Master's Degree in Historical, Critical and Theoretical Studies on Cinema and Audiovisuals.

 

For the last 10 years I have been working in and off Italy (USA, Europe, Africa) as 1st Assistant Director for mainstream features, TV & independent film projects, commercials and music videos, assisting both experienced and debut directors.

 

In 2017 I was 1st AD to Oscar-Winning Director Robert Moresco for his feature film Bent, starring Andy Garcia, Sofia Vergara and Karl Urban. During my career, I also had the pleasure to work with several other major film stars, such as: Antonio Banderas, Rutger Hauer, Michael Madsen, Stephen Baldwin, Mischa Barton and Danny  Trejo.

 

As an author, besides documentary and fiction short-films, I edited and co-directed Platges, a full-length documentary film selected at Sitges MEDIMED Festival (Spain) and at Valdarno Cinema FEDIC Festival (Italy).

 

I'm currently collaborating with several companies and associations, producing, filming and directing commercials and corporate videos.

 

Acting as Film-Maker and Video Journalist, to this day, I have written, produced and filmed more than 200 reports, documentaries and insight features for renowned international video agencies and broadcasters, such as: RUPTLY (Germany), China Plus (China), RT (Russia), PressTV (Iran), JoVE (USA), MedPage Today (USA), Global News (Canada), Warner Bros. Home Video (USA), Ten TV Network (Egypt), and Channel 9 (Israel).

 

 In 2016 I joined the EU-funded project VolunTube World as Video Trainer and Tutor. Since then I have trained and tutored more than 30 young people from European, Asian, and South American countries. I gave them a theoretical and practical training on how to film and edit short documentaries about sensitive global issues. It turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences in my whole life.
