A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

I got my hands on my first computer magazine "BYTE" and its 3½" diskette, when I was 6. I didn't have a PC then, but I was curious.

At 10, I still didn't have a PC but i was already accumulating CDs. Met with software and internet concepts first through the magazines --from where I learned to write... HTML.

At around 13 years old, I got my first PC, with dial-up, there and then, everything grew exponentially.

I wanted to be a computer engineer, so I became one. I took one step further, I wanted to master these skills, learn more about how it works.

Composing "Design, Architecture, Engineering" aspects of Politecnico di Milano, I have a strong arm on IT. Solution development has become my natural skill; the number of languages I can develop software in is more than the languages I can fluently speak. I code as a hobby on web and mobile, also worked on Arduino and Pi projects that could be used for everyday life.

Currently I'm working as an Enterprise Performance Management & Business Analytics consultant, developing solutions using different technologies, such as SAP, IBM Cognos TM1 and Oracle Essbase. Catch me on MSDN or StackOverflow too!

I write with pen and paper most of the time. Yet my blog is (was) mostly about information technologies. Have a look.
