I’m interested in the exploration of humanity and the beauty of imperfection.

I was born in Milan, Italy – my first home- where I worked as a music reviewer and published two novels at the age of 13 and 18. I briefly studied philosophy at Milan’s local university but dropped out to get involved in writing for film and theatre.

I started wondering what was the most effective way to tell a story, to make it feel and look as alive as possible? My answer to that was film, as a craft that mixes all arts. That’s when I moved to my second home, Dublin, and started my film studies and my first experiences as director, writer and Tv Researcher. 

I’m currently London based and work as a director, production designer, casting director and script editor. My main focus remains writing. 

In life I wish to grow, to make beauty out of sadness and I have hopes that in a more evolved world and civilization, film will be able to change what really doesn’t work in society. And it’s worth fighting for.

Toya breaks free and fights them, to reveal that behind the mask they are humans and lost just like her. Metaphor of the workaholic London life the video attempts an invitation to remember what life can be when we keep it simple.
