I started working in the film industry at a very young age, I started at the lowest rank and steadily grew in my production career. In between working on the different projects, I found time to direct short films, which is my primary passion. Presently I am dedicating my energy solely to directing, that passion has remained since my first day of set. The twenty years experience of production has been invaluable. I worked on, television series, films, on Italian and International films, working with talented directors like Guy Richie, Jan Sardi, Giuseppe Tornatore, Terry Gilliam and high profile technicians.
In 2003 I opened my production company, Shooting Stars with whom I started to produce. The first movie was also my debut with the feature film "City Limits." With a cast of young talents over the years everyone will find their way, Edoardo Leo, Rolando Ravello, Luca Ward and Giorgio Colangeli. The film was released in theaters distributed by Pablo and was bought by RAI Cinema and broadcast on RAI-3 and La7, it also participated in many international festivals with favor and awards.
Along with Carlo Degli Esposti and Giorgio Magliulo I produced and co-produce several films. Among the most important the directorial debut of Kim Rossi Stuart "Along the ridge” in competition at Cannes Film Festival (Quinzaine des Réalisateur) that is worth us a candidacy at the David di Donatello Producer, while the film won awards in many international festivals and Italian Silver Ribbon and Ciak d'oro. It follows the movie "Piano Solo" by Riccardo Milani, from the book by Walter Veltroni "The world record" and starring Kim Rossi Stuart, Paola Cortellesi, Jasmine Trinca and Michele Placido.
In 2006 my first novel "La luna a mezzogiorno" was published by Robin Edizioni.
