About Daniel

I'm a filmmaker born in Milan, Italy, today resident near Chicago, IL. I've worked in different roles on several kinds of productions, from documentaries to music video, from short films to corporate.

Professionally I grew up in the early years of non-linear editing, which gave me the opportunity to learn from classically trained film editors and to evolve exploring the new narrative opportunities that NLE offered.

Immigration in the US and recent health challenges have shaped my perspective on life and have a strong influence in my work.

I recently wrote, produced and directed my first US short film production entitled Thank You Rebbe that was selected at the 2016 Glendale International Film Festival and the Chelsea Film Festival.
