My passion is storytelling. So, I started my professional career as a film and video director. Graduated in Advertising, right at the beginning, I worked in production companies, with institutional and advertising pieces. I have had some experiences in television, as director of educational programs. But I was soon seduced by the possibility of telling short stories, combining fiction, political engagement, memories, and social issues. However, writing was what brought me the most pleasure, much stimulated by the taste for reading, acquired in childhood. Since 2007 I have been researching, writing, and publishing, thanks to the interest of readers and publishers.
