SCREENWRITER, DINNER GUEST #3
As a boy, Giovanni loved comic books but hated writing. So, his Dad made him an offer he couldn’t refuse: “Giovanni, every day you write two pages, I’ll take you out for dessert.” Giovanni’s love for writing quickly grew with his waistline and he went on to become a journalist, communications professional and published screenwriter. But his childhood passion for comics never dwindled and a little while ago he took a leap of faith and launched Sinopia Comics, his very own comic book publishing company (where there’s never any shortage of creative ideas or delicious desserts!).
