Biography

I have a passionate interest in computer science and new technologies (I am, in other words, a geek): one of those people who feel an unstoppable urge to test and try all the new gadgets they hear about. I began dabbling in this kind of stuff back in 1989 (I was barely three years old at the time) when my father let me use his Commodore 64 personal computer (I still have that treasured machine).

Year later I became a firm believer in the benefits of open technologies both for companies and final users; over time this has brought me into the DIY community. I have integrated the “maker philosophy” into myself. Arduino and 3D printing are the two branches of current technology that I am most passionate about, but I still keep up to date with advances in the fields of drones, VR goggles, wearable computing, etc…

Regarding my professional specialization (programming), I am not just someone who studied the subject – I was born with it; it is something that came installed by default in my soul. I wrote my first web page in 1994, a hideous monster full of GIFs, marquees and bright colors, created with FrontPage… At that time I did not even think about the possibility of becoming a professional creator of web pages. However, perhaps by chance, my professional development ended up taking me down this path. With time I have found out that this subject is not just something that fascinates me: I have fallen in love with WordPress (I create themes and plugins not just for work, but also as a hobby).

Many people are surprised when they learn that I am a computer expert and an actor, because they think that those fields have nothing to do with each other. For me, however, it was a very natural thing. Although I mostly relate to IT, I complete my personality with an acting hobby in theater and movies that has reached semi-professional levels. I have also taken some steps in writing, with some published short stories and a self-published novel.

Besides all that, I am an extrovert and I have no trouble speaking, so that if there are any questions about my CV or my introduction, I will be happy to answer them by email, on the phone, or in a face to face meeting.
