Who Am I

I met the programming world when I was 12yo and I loved it! Few years later I started using linux and met the Internet. Since then Computers is a charming world to me.

In my job I emphasize the quality of the results over the fast execution. In particular when I face a new project I study and I weigh alternative decisions before developing the solution.

In my spare time I walk in cities or mountains taking photographs or I play boardgames.
