Hello! UK-based Italian filmmaker here, with an inclination towards dark, surreal or very gentle comedy. Thanks for stopping by.

​Hyphen is my least favourite punctuation sign, but I ended up doing a variety of things in my career, so here goes:


I am a lucky bastard. I have had the privilege to work with the most amiable and talented actors (Fred Melamed, Sophie Thompson) on You Are Whole and A Disappearance, two shorts which had a solid festival run premiering at Palm Springs, Edinburgh and Vancouver, and scooped up a Vimeo Staff Pick along the way. Together with my filmmaking partner Laurence Brook, I founded Butthead Films because we enjoy being embarrassed by the names we give to things. The two of us were awarded the Fall 2022 Shore Scripts Short Film Fund to produce our next short, He Woke Up To Deflating News, an absurdist comedy about a pensioner being turned into a coffee shop by council incompetence and corporate greed. We are currently in development with Minor Arcana, a TV series set in the world of psychic mediums.


Though I have edited narrative short and long-form, I have a soft spot for documentary and its endless possibilities, and I have had the luck to cut for streaming services (Netflix, Disney+, Discovery+) and broadcast TV (Channel 4, BBC, Channel 5). The best editors I worked with have taught me the importance of sharing knowledge and lifting people up, so when I can I offer mentoring and I work as an Editing Lecturer at various Higher Education institutions, including Warwick University and LSBU. I am part of Edit Collective and I have been an Associate Governor of British Film Editors.


Having worked as an English-Italian Translator on short-form fiction and novels (Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - now a major motion picture!), my work has crossed over to film with projects from VICE/Google, BBC, Fremantle, Wildside Productions and HBO, for whom I have been translating some of Paolo Sorrentino's works-in-progress. I have also translated works by Steven Knight and Felix van Groeningen.

I have been a mentor for BEATS and have taught filmmaking courses for charity Iconic Steps. I run a seasonal neurodivergent-friendly get-together called Small Network (join here!). ​I have a 10-year background as a Journalist and an MA from the London Film School.
