Personal Description:

I am a producer, writer, media content creator and academic who is proficient in producing entertainment in different media and connecting them to build up engaging narratives. I am the founder of the production companies Whip Ma Whop Ma Film and Transmedia Tale, and the director of the short films Numeri, Admission, Magdalene, and Shelf Life. I have a PhD in Film and **Contact Detail Removed**vision Technology and Practice, and I teach Game Art at Brunel University London. The film 'Shelf Life' which I directed was shortlisted for the AHRC Research in Film Awards 2018 at BAFTA for its use of binaural audio which allows visually impaired listeners to identify the positions of characters and objects in space. I am currently producing web-series, games, and comics for the 'A Monster Lass' project and writing my first novel. In November 2021, I started The Drawnbridge, a **Contact Detail Removed** and Twitch channel on Game Art. My comics are sold on ComiXology, and my paintings are on Artstation.

Teaching Experience:

Doctor in visual effects and lecturer in game art with more than 10 years’ experience in the field. I have been a personal tutor in Languages since 2004.

Teaching Approach:

Learning is super fun and within your reach! I am a professional tutor and expert in teaching Italian and producing media and I taught to students for years. I inspire my students to experiment and learn through a practical approach conceived to develop their talents and realise their goals in a friendly environment. Send me a message on what you would like to learn and let's organise a lesson. The first one is free! I am particularly good at inspiring students, especially beginners, to learn what they love! My method adapts to the student and does involve theory, practice and motivational advices :) I have experience with students with special needs and of all ages.
