Technology and computer science has always been my main passion.
At the age of 9 I had my first Olivetti PC with the “new” Windows 3.1, without a hard disk and with only the floppy drive. Being passionate about Lego and Meccano, I’ve always found it interesting to create constructions and develop devices. These passions guided my university career in computer science engineering.
On a chilly day of April 2014 I quit my job in Italy to follow my American dream. Finally at the age of 29 I decided to start a new life in New York City, and I immediately fell in love with the city.
At the moment I am based in London.
My professional dream? I wish to work for a very important company such as Google or Blizzard, or start my own business.
