About me

It all began in 1997, when my parents gave me as a gift something I strongly desired: a JVC camcorder. Then I started studying cinema, art and literature at Pisa University and graduated in 2008. I have continued studying direction and filmmaking in Milan. Later I moved to Rome, working as director assistant on film sets and also as Jr VFX operator and editor in a digital visual effects' studio. In 2012 I started working in advertising and I directed and edited many web and TV commercials, videoclip, interviews. I'm fond of film editing and I deeply love Antonioni, von Trier and Kar-wai.
