About Me

I'm an high level software engineer: from customer needs to delivery, from development to production, I've experienced many aspects of software life-cycle during my 20+ years background in computer science.

Dedicated to give the customer the best possible experience, I'm very observant and addicted to new technologies.

I'm convinced I don't know everything, but I know where and how to search what I need to never get stuck.

I'm also a big fan of DIY projects where I can continue to experiment new techniques and different aspects of technologies (RaspberryPi, machine learning, IOT, CAD and 3D printing)
