Cinematographer. Storyteller. Filmmaker.
I think my first experience with films was in the maternity ward when my father - a radiologist with love for cinema - saw me for the first time through the lens of his super 8mm.
I grew up surrounded by equipments that could in some way, capture and produce images. In this environment I did my first films with my brother and I was building my influences, leading the passion to the seventh art as something fun.
In 2010, I moved to New York, and enrolled in the Directing program (One Year Film Making Program) at the New York Film Academy. A semester later, I turned my attention to the cinematography (One Year Cinematography Program) and graduated as a cinematographer.
Since then, I've done many works as cinematographer and director, between feature films, short films, tv commercials, music videos and other wonderful experiences. Works that earned awards, recognition and mainly lots of joy. Jobs that fuel my passion for filmmaking.
