Software Developer

I've worked on project maintenance, application management and corrective maintenance for two Italian airports and a publishing house. Here I understood what it means to work in a team, to make analysis activity (functional and technical) and estimation.

Now I work only for one of the above Italian airports as (a small) team leader and I carry out analysis and estimations activities. I'm learning to coordinate developments and resources and improving myself on feasibility studies.

Interests

Apart from being a web developer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. During the warmer months here in Sicily, I like to go hiking with friends and go scuba diving.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, I'm a student who works and and I spend a large amount of my free time studying university subjects and exploring the latest technology advancements in the back-end web development world.
