After several credits as screenwriter and assistant director he made his directorial debut with the eurospy film Secret Agent Fireball. Among the screenplays he collaborated The Whip and the Body by Mario Bava, Arizona Colt by Michele Lupo and the Lamberto Bava's giallo Delirium. In the seventies he produced and co-wrote a long series of successful commedie sexy all'italiana including Quel gran pezzo dell'Ubalda tutta nuda e tutta calda, Giovannona Long-Thigh and The School Teacher, which launched the career of Edwige Fenech, with whom he was engaged at the time. With the decline of the genre he focused on television, producing TV series and television films.
