I'm Julio Vincent Gambuto, an author + moviemaker.


* Just to be clear, that's not my art behind me. Maggie Shannon took this photo for me at the Kimpton Hotel in Los Angeles.

My debut feature film, Team Marco, a family comedy about tech use and intergenerational friendship, is available from Samuel Goldwyn Films — on Apple TV, Amazon, Hulu, and now on Starz. Outside the US, it's streaming in 25+ countries.

I just wrote my first book, Please Unsubscribe, Thanks! — published by Avid Reader Press at Simon & Schuster. It's in bookstores in the US and the UK, and coming soon to Italy (April 30), France, and Brazil. It was nominated for a 2024 Audie Award for Best Business/ Personal Development Audiobook.

In 2024, I was invited to speak at SXSW. And Silver Fox — a new and very gay comedy short I wrote and directed — is headed to film festivals, from The New Yorker.

You can read my essays on Mediumincluding the viral essay, Prepare for the Ultimate Gaslighting, which circled the globe to over 21 million readers. Or learn more about my background here.

I do use socials twice a week, mostly for announcements and such. Otherwise, I'm pretty offline. Hope to meet you soon, in real life. A hearty handshake awaits.


P.S. It's Giulio.
