My teaching methodology is always bespoke and based on the talents needs.
The session will usually contain : Check in/Meditation/feelings before starting, vocal/body exercises, improv, cold reading and preparation of scenes.
With the student/s we could decide and pick 2 or 3 areas to focus on in each session and then switch as we go, to keep improving as an actor and creative.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Yuri will plan your first lesson with care.
With over twenty years of experience and some big challenges that I’ve been through I could be the right person to empower you to express your full potential even more.
I’ve started my career as an actor/creative director 20 years ago in a small town in South Italy Puglia when I quit university to follow my dreams. After many doors closed for me and 10 years working my way up, studying, focusing on my self development, I had a break through in 2011 becoming the worldwide ambassador/face of Martini brand replacing George Clooney.
I’ve been working since then with A list directors, productions and brands all around the world in front and behind the camera, I am also a published writer and transformational coach certified ICF and with the creative production company I co-own, I help brand and private clients to express their need of telling a story or enhancing an existing one.
If you need the point of view of a down to earth person, happy and genuinely wanting to share his life experience in the business and in the creative world and how to follow the freedom of expressing yourself, and achieve your goals, I am your man.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Ciao and welcome to my CV page.
I am an actor, creative director and transformational coach with the passion for poetry and photography.
I was born in Vigevano in 1978. At the age of twenty I left Puglia and went to study at the School Of Cinema in Rome (Acting & Directing) and subsequently at The Actor Centre in London.
In July 2019 I have completed my accredited ICF diploma, in life coaching at the Animas Centre for Coaching in London.
I have travelled a lot with my work and I have had the pleasure of working with numerous directors such as Paul Feig in the movie Spy, produced by 20th Century Fox, Mandie Fletcher in the movie Patrick for Walt Disney UK, Jordan Scott and Peter Thwaites in the worldwide campaign for Martini & Rossi produced by Gorgeous film and RSA Film, Angelo Longoni in the movie "Tiberio Mitri - The champion and the miss", Luca Lucini in the movie "Just Married” and also with Alessandro D'Alatri on several campaigns for major brands such as Telecom, Dreher, TIM and Repubblica…
I love writing. I find it really therapeutic. My first book "My life on a cactus" a collection of 32 poems and a monologue for theatre, was published in 2008 by Casa editrice Giuseppe Laterza & figli.
My passion for theatre made me write and direct “I will not go down from here” an extract from my book, which won a Theatre Award In Naples at the Naples Cultural Classic (A monologue about suicide, which caught the attention of the newspapers).
My point of view as a director emerged from being on both sides of the camera and my passion for photography has developed alongside moving images.
In 2014 I relocated to London and joined Najma Bhatti at Four55 Ltd our Creative Agency, where my skills in writing and co-directing have created a great symbiosis.
Our latest success has been creating, directing and producing the opening show at the DIFF (Dubai Film Festival 2016) which won gold at the Muse Creative Awards. In advertising we have won Platinum at the Hermes Creative Awards with the TVC Bleu the Chanel written, directed and produced by us. We have also worked on the Lana Del Rey TVC “Honeymoon” advert and at the last Campaign for Boots, No 7 Serum, alongside the BAFTA award winning director Tom Harper starring Prima Ballerina Alessandra Ferri.
Grazie to been part of my journey.
Perfect! Yuri is an amazing techer and mentor, i am looking forward to move on with the next classes!
I had my first lesson with Daniele, really good energy and desire to learn and improve.
Yurj is an incredibly energetic, sensitive and thoughtful human being. Would 100% recommend him as a coach and tutor.
Yurj has been really helpful guiding me through career decisions.
He is really patient and has a great manner to coax you to find answers yourself.
Yuri is able to identify your true self and motivate you to bring it in tangible life goals. He inspire to bring the best that you have inside, that sometimes you never had identifyed before, outsourcing yours most genuine feelings to generate actions. With him, I am able to discover new values and don't focus in others that doesn't make sense for this life cicle. And add on that, brings knowledge and intensity to your goals and desires, applying daily. Guides how to focus in the present reducing overthinking, reaching better achievements. I'm thankful for Yuri and strongly reccomend him. You'll discover a new you and will be honest to who you are in this life stage.
I highly recommend Yuri for his lessons on positive thinking and motivation, as well as being an amazing Life Coach and Mentor.
I have known Yuri for about 4 years and he's assisted me tremendously in getting my life into more perspective.
He is highly intelligent, trustworthy, patient, understanding, generous, kind and able to pinpoint the problem and provide possible solutions and help you see things from different perspectives.
I follow Yuri's helpful posts on social media and know he's always there for me.
I'm forever grateful to Yuri.
