    About me

    I am a freelance editor who has gained a deep understanding of film's storytelling conventions through rigorous academic study. I have a BA, an MA, and a Ph.D in Film History, Theory, and Criticism from Italy. I have studied Filmmaking and Film Editing in the US (Los Angeles and New York City) and here in London, where I earned an MA in Filmmaking at Goldsmiths University. My main goal is to become an experienced feature film editor and develop great skills as a visual storyteller.

    I love the idea that the technology and the techniques of film editing are not just instruments one applies to achieve narrative continuity, but tools to give films what they need in emotional terms. In fact, I have a particular inclination for cutting for emotional affect and density, and I enjoy being able to always keep the narrative on the right emotional course (be that fiction or documentary).

    I have edited short films, narrative/drama and music video, and feature length experimental documentaries, and fiction/drama.

    I am prepared to work alone, but I enjoy teamwork and have a deep awareness of the collaborative nature of filmmaking. In fact, I am able to work easily with directors, those with a more autonomous approach but also those requiring someone with whom they can share an artistic vision. I am also available to work as assistant editor.
