Giornalista VS TecnicoI am an Italian technical journalist formed through years of experience in various Italian publishing enviroments like press agencies, newspapers, blogs, istitutional sites, magazines. My studies in electrical engineering and computer science have made me competent in various areas of information technology. The practice first as IT manager and then as journalist led me to be a good link between the two professions.

 

Pulizia CarburatoreA good journalist is rarely a good technician, as well as a computer expert is ardously a good adviser. In my case these two aspects merge. My curiosity leads me to learn every aspect of the matter which I deal with. The passion does the rest. I did not have to wait for the speech of Steve Jobs “to be hungry”. I always have been.

I am so hungry and so insatiable that I stopped working in a newsroom and I chose to be a digital nomad. For a year and a half I lived off the articles that I wrote from anywhere. From the high slopes of Mont Blanc, skiing for a whole winter to the crystal clear beaches of Sardinia, for a long summer, I sent news, analysis and articles thanks to a laptop and a mobile Internet connection.

Today I rediscovered my roots, the deep connections that I have with one of the most beautiful Capital of the World, a city so full of history and curiosity that a curious person like me could not abandon it.

 

FIRSTonlineSo I started to propose simple solutions to companies that needed to be present on the Internet with an articulated form of digital communication. I then created sites using common CMS (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal), optimizing the code when needed, mostly for sports facilities, bed and breakfast and restaurant.

I am proud to have participated in the copywriting of a startup that sells traditional food products, experimenting with different solutions for e-commerce (OpenCart, Magento, WooCommerce, Prestashop) and that is still growing.

I went back to work in a newsroom, for an economic and finance magazine, but with a work flexibility that allows me to work in the evening as a scuba diving instructor.

In my free time I like to fly in the sky with my paraglider, gliding on the water with my kitesurf and on the snow with my snowboard, letting me being pushed by the wind with my windsurf, or a sailboat when I’m with someone.

I love the projects that are social and 2.0. For this reason I’m an active couchsurfer, I use all of car-sharing programs, and I offer steps with BlaBlaCar, as well as tasty dishes with VizEat.

I think that curiosity drives men to knowledge and that it makes him never full of it. So, I’m not full and I’m always waiting for a new work adventure that for me it’s the same of a pleasure trip.
