From 2009 to 2013 he is the screenwriter, director and editor of every production (short movies and documentaries) made by Helix Pictures, a cultural association which promotes Tuscany through Indipendent Film.
In the same years he made video installation in many cities of Tuscany, including "Kinesbanon", a site specific video installation, for the International Biennial of Contemporary Art "M'Arte", where he explored the construction and deconstruction of the relationship between cinema and theater; he directed an experimental webserie titled "Dama: di amici, morte, amore" and he was awarded the "Premio Europa - VI Edizione" for emerging directors by the Cinema and Tourism Association of the town of Cecina, for "the development of the cinema culture".
In 2014 he graduated with 110 cum laude at the University La Sapienza of Rome. In 2015 he was awarded a scholarship and residency at Fabrica Research Centre. Here he spent three years, developing his interest for documentary filmmaking, telling the protests in Skopje during 2016 colorful revolution in short reportage ChromoSkpje, following the practice of the american photographer Drew Nikonowicz in Notes from Anywhere, documenting the life inside the spiritual community of Damanhur in The Choice of Staying, a project that required years to be developed.
In 2018, after one year as photographer Oliviero Toscani's official filmmaker, he left Fabrica to start focusing only to freelancing and documentary projects.
