(Italy, 1981)

After my studies focused in Narratology and Visual Culture, I learnt the craft of film at the Italian National Film School, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome, one of the most exclusive and appreciated film schools worldwide, where I later worked as asst. Professor and Tutor.

Specialized in Film Editing, I started working in 2003 as Film Editor and Assistant Editor in a wide variety of genres of feature films, shorts and documentaries screened at film festivals worldwide including Cannes, Venezia, Beijing and Clermont-Ferrand.
Later on, I could widen my technical skills working in postproduction and advertising, refining the tools I use to shape contents and stories.

I teach and tutor in courses and workshops, and I collaborate with international film festivals and events as selector and jury member.

Beyond my wide technical experience from 35 mm to digital, I keep the storytelling as the only core element in the craft of Film Editing.
