I started coding around the age of 18 and immediately fell in love with it. Since I was always passionate about mobile (first with Nokia and theirs Symbian and then with Android), it was natural for me to continue on that path. I started working in a small agency in South Italy where I had the opportunity to work on a lot of projects, then decided to expand my horizons and moved to Amsterdam where I started to work at WeTransfer.

Particular signs: I love sports in general, I am a regular runner and since love everything that flies I am a proud paraglider!
