About Me

I am a filmmaker, editor and photographer based in Central Scotland (even though this does not prevent me from a lot of creative wandering).

You can find me on Instagram:

And here my website: http://fodaromovingimages.com/

I was born in the south of Italy, where I grew up until I moved to Rome to study Philosophy and Film Direction.
I lived in the overwhelmingly inspiring Italian capital for about 10 years, researching and working on creative projects; then I moved to Scotland in 2014.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is a great opportunity to meet people from everywhere. It is a way to experience, to imagine and to be inspired through trips that others have already done.

A chance to share my passions with others. I love it!
