What can I do for you?

I’ve a 10+ years experience in software and IT, my favourite topic is always been distributed systems, with particular emphasis on backend services and integration components.

I love the solutioning process, I do enjoy tackling problems in order to find solutions. I’m curious and I’m a quick learner, I like keeping up to date with IT trends and generally I love learning new and smart ways of doing things, so study is still an important part of my daily routine.

I’ve good interpersonal skills, which allowed me to be successfully deployed as a support figure to smooth and help the interaction of IT with other Enterprise Departments. My soft skills combined with my technical background and my business process awareness have made me helpful both inside and outside the pure IT domain.
