Hello. I am a director, writer and filmmaker based in London.
I was born in Milan but moved to London at age 1. I started my career in Soho at Academy Films and Independent, producing music videos and commercials. During this time I also had the opportunity to develop a slate of feature films alongside the wonderful Kate Myers of Forward Films. I worked with Kate on Jonathan Glazer’s film “Birth” and Peter Cattaneo’s “Opal Dreams”.
In 2003 I moved back to Milan and worked as TV Producer for the advertising Agency McCann Erickson. In 2005 I eventually left advertising to turn to documentaries heading the video department at Report Age, a Milan based production company, making videos and documentaries for the CSR sector as well as for NGO’s and organizations.
In 2006 I started a collaboration with Mercurio Cinematografica in Milan where I collaborated on the production of two feature documentaries. Ninjas Du Japon, which won Best Documentary at the Austin Film Festival 2008 and Best Social Documentary in Shanghai 2008, and later Megunica, which won best Creative Documentary at the International Amsterdam Film Festival 2008, the Special Merit Prize at Taiwan Documentary Film Festival 2008, was nominated for the Youth Jury Award at Sheffield DocFest 2008 and won Best Documentary Visioni Italiane 2009 in Bologna. Inspired by the making of these two docs, I decided to have a go at producing a film myself, so I teamed up again with Giovanni Giommi, the director of Ninjas, and started the long journey that eventually lead to the making of Bad Weather. In 2009 Cornbread Films was born and I continue to make films that I am deeply passionate about.
