About / A little something about myself
Born in Italy, class of 1974, I lived all my childhood in Equatorial Africa where I studied in international schools learning Italian, French and English. In the late eighties I came back with my family to Europe, living between Belgium, France and finally Northeastern Italy.
I moved to Rome in 2003, when I started being involved in professional cinema working as Casting Agent first and Casting Assistant then for foreign productions shooting in Italy.
In 2006 I started my own company AMF Studios working as Casting Director mainly for commercials. My portfolio include clients like Dior, Hallmark, Barilla USA, Volvo, Chrysler, Silverpoint, among many others. With all my gained experience directing actors, in 2015 I finally started working on feature films and TV shows as well.
My passion for genre films and producers like Roger Corman and Charles Band recently led me to start my own production company, Creepmaker Studios, characterized by a distinct passion for Horror, Thriller, Sci-Fi and Fantasy entertainment. Two features are actually in the making. Beside my main activities as a Casting Director, I also produce and direct.
Since my debut in the film industry I have sometimes used the pseudonym “Mancuso” in honor of Kevin Mancuso, one of the many pseudonyms of Aristide Massaccesi (Joe d’Amato), one of my favorite directors.
