Ciao and welcome to my page.
I am an actor/coach and creative director with the passion for photography.
I was born in Vigevano in 1978. At the age of twenty I left Puglia and went to study at the School Of Cinema in Rome (Acting & Directing) and subsequently at The Actor Centre in London.
Currently I am doing my accredited ICF diploma, in life coaching at the Animas Centre for Coaching in London.
I have travelled a lot with my work and I have had the pleasure of working with numerous directors such as Paul Feig in the movie Spy, produced by 20th Century Fox, Mandie Fletcher in the movie Patrick for Walt Disney UK, Jordan Scott and Peter Thwaites in the worldwide campaign for Martini & Rossi produced by Gorgeous film and RSA Film, Angelo Longoni in the movie "Tiberio Mitri - The champion and the miss", Luca Lucini in the movie "Just Married” and also with Alessandro D'Alatri on several campaigns for major brands such as Telecom, Dreher, TIM and Repubblica…
I love writing. I find it really therapeutic. My first book "My life on a cactus" a collection of 32 poems and a monologue for theatre, was published in 2008 by Casa editrice Giuseppe Laterza & figli.
My passion for theatre made me write and direct “I will not go down from here” an extract from my book, which won a Theatre Award In Naples at the Naples Cultural Classic (A monologue about suicide, which caught the attention of the newspapers).
My point of view as a director emerged from being on both sides of the camera and my passion for photography has developed alongside moving images.
In 2014 I relocated to London and joined Najma Bhatti at Four55 Ltd our Creative Agency, where my skills in writing and co-directing have created a great symbiosis.
Our latest success has been creating, directing and producing the opening show at the DIFF (Dubai Film Festival 2016) which won gold at the Muse Creative Awards. In advertising we have won Platinum at the Hermes Creative Awards with the TVC Bleu the Chanel written, directed and produced by us. We have also worked on the Lana Del Rey TVC “Honeymoon” advert and at the last Campaign for Boots, No 7 Serum, alongside the BAFTA award winning director Tom Harper starring Prima Ballerina Alessandra Ferri.
Grazie to been part of my journey …
