About Me

Software Engineer, Geek, Photographer


I'm not a great programmer; I'm just a good programmer with great habits.

[Kent Beck]

I am a freelance software engineer, living in Rome with Francesca in a lovely semi-countryside flat. I'm a curious, I mean really curious person passionate about the web, digital culture, libre knowledge, DIY and degrowth culture, photography, sound engineering and all the other geeky things you can imagine.

My developer profile: Agile is the methodology, Linux the kernel, Nginx the server, PHP the language, Symfony the framework. Oh - don't tell anyone - Node.js golang is my secret lover.
I am a proud GrUSP, PHP User Group Roma, Arduino User Group Roma and Golang Italian User Group active member.

On this website you can find some of my thoughts and writings, a gallery of my photo's and, on the top of this page, all the social links if you want to find out more about me.
