Growing up with a father who was an editor specializing in commercials for RAI Italian television in the 1980s, I spent countless hours watching him handle (literally) hundreds of yards of film, cutting frames out of analog raw footage with an X-acto knife, and piecing scenes together with clear tape. I remember being mesmerized by the magic of large canisters of film transformed into narratives playing on the tiny screen of a massive

editing machine. That experience was matched only by the joy I felt every time my family gathered on the couch to watch the television premiere of the latest commercial my father had created. 

It's hard to believe that my father's analog editing machine is now on display at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, IT, our hometown.

Those formative years shaped my career. A globally recognized video, documentary and short film producer, I am proud of the 200+ videos I've created for more than 150 clients in different industries. From small and large businesses to non-profit organizations and institutions, I transformed their narratives into videos in new and creative ways.

Notable Achievements:

 

  • I earned recognition for my short film "The White Box," including the 2019 Audience Award from the Lift-off Global Network Online Sessions, and an Official Selection at 4 separate film festivals including, the Blowup International Arthouse Film Festival, Chicago (2019), the Lift-Off Global Network Film Festival, Berlin, Germany (2020), Amsterdam (2019), and New York (2019). 

  • For my short film, "The Sun Inside," I was awarded an Upside Down Grant in 2017 by One Revolution Foundation.

  • In 2011, I earned the McKinney Award in Graduate Electronic Media at RPI while pursuing my MFA. I am really excited to know my video is still impacting as it has been used in the undergraduate curriculum and graduate seminars in American Studies coursework at the University of Kansas.
