A quick intro.

Daniel is from Milan, Italy. Once achieved his bachelor in Advertising as a copywriter, he won a European grant to join one of the best film production houses at the time, Central Productions. After a few first steps in production, he joined a post facility named Rumblefish. He worked as AVID editor for three years in the pioneering years of NLE, the mid 90's.

After three years he started to freelance, and that opportunity gave him the chance to merge his academic copy-writing mind-set with his post-production skills. He worked and evolved as director. From 2004 to 2008 he worked at Multimedia Systems as writer, video and event director. Relocating to the US was a major change in his life, and in 2017 he began working again. From 2018to 2021 he worked as Video Director in one of Chicago's major non-profit organizations. In 2020 he was nominated a regional EMMY for a PSA he wrote, filmed and edited. In 2021 his short film Thank You Rebbe won the Best Jewish Film award at the Remember The Future international film festival in Cannes, France.

Communications strategist, writer, and director.

Award-winning (41st Telly Awards 2020, Silver) and regional EMMY-nominated content producer with international experience developing creative strategy, managing production teams, and developing content for Arts, Broadcast, Corporate, Entertainment, and Non-Profit initiatives. Passion for storytelling led me to wear multiple hats, from founding niche social networks to directing videos and conventions. I love to travel and have developed projects in China, Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Tibet, and the USA.
