Form 2003 until 2007, I worked at Double Negative (London) as a Senior Visual Effects Compositor.
In 2007 I started my career as a director of commercials, music videos and fashion shows winning more than 30 International Awards.
I love to create unique atmospheres in every film I work and my passion is working with actors.
My latest production “Through the Breaking Glass” has travelled around the world in more than 30 International Film Festival and has been award with Honorable Mention of the Jury at the Palm Springs ShortFest and Best Short in International Film Festival Manhattan.
I look for inspiring, innovative and challenging projects and people to work with who love what they do and who are ready to take risks and chances to push forward the storytelling.
