Raised in Welkom in the Free State, Vittorio started his flights of fancy very early.

However, once TV-Land had him, they wouldn't let him go as he has continued in this vein, writing for SABC 1's local celebrity gossip show The Real Goboza since 2010; for children's television on Let's Get Quizzical and on sitcoms such as Thandeka's Diary, Ses'Top La and Abo Mzala.
