I recently scored the New Zealand movie Orphans & Kingdoms, the TV movies Il Confine, and Il Giudice Meschino (aired on the Italian flagship public television channel Rai1) and the docu-film Ilaria Alpi - L’ultimo Viaggio (aired on Rai3). I also provided music for the video games Thunderbird, Zotrix, Cyber Chicken and Boxes With Guns.
I lead a film scoring course at the Italian National Film School. Among the guest lecturers that participated are Academy Award winners Ennio Morricone, Mychael Danna, Ludovic Bource and Nicola Piovani. As a tribute to my hometown I composed Napoli, a 4-movements Symphony. A succesfull crowdfunding campaign helped me producing The 8-bit Time Machine, an album homaging the 80s’ video game culture.
I started playing piano at age 4. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music majoring in Film Scoring. Shortly after I enrolled in the Los Angeles Internship Program. During that time I moved my first steps in the movie business participating in such projects as Sam Raimi's Spider-man 3 and John Singleton's Illegal Tender. After that I worked on many movies among which The Ramen Girl and Calvary.
