biography

Born in Torino (Italy) in 1989 and based in Milan, I’m a director and photographer working in fashion, music and art documentary, with a parallel artistic research on personal and collective archives.

I have a background in acting for theatre and I studied Directing Commercials at the NFTS (National Film and Television School) in London.

I’m currently working on my first feature film.
