About me

I am originally from Italy, I've lived in the UK for 7 years, and now I currently live in Vancouver, Canada.

I've started being interested in the web and doing websites when I was 15 at the end of the '90s and I've never stopped ever since. I am very driven, a self learner, and I like challenges.

I live this job as one of my passions and, as such, I put as much effort as I can into it, trying to find best solutions for every task and by getting full understanding of my technical choices.
