I was born and lived in Roma, Italia, before moving to Canada and the US where I finished my studies in architecture, later becoming a renegade architect… That’s me…
Gypsy by definition and researcher by devotion, I now happen to live in Melbourne, Australia enjoying photography and writing. Playwright and author of several novels with a non-fiction book about marriage and divorce, and an award-winning theatre play… That’s what I do…
Love You Dad
Made in Melbourne. Cahan Conan Connell (Kane) is a young, talented musician and the single father of a 7 year old girl, Kelly.
He loses both his parents in a car accident when he is only 3 years old, and is raised by his older sister Cara on the family dairy farm.
A testosterone charged tale of love, fear, friendship, manliness, single parenting and musical passion spanning over three continents: Australia, North America and Europe.
Made in Melbourne. A window of a few weeks in the life of twelve friends, their relationships, their fears, their idiosyncrasies and their dreams.
They come from varied paths and cultural backgrounds, reflecting the reality (and the miracle) of today’s cosmopolitan Australia, sharing their day-to-day experiences, hopes, emotions, frustrations and life’s gifts around a big dining table sitting all twelve of them.
The Fiction is set in contemporary Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay
