You: How's August 2018?

Me: Currently in Berlin,
I'm one of the founders and active member of the welance collective and a freelance Developer (JS / Front-End).

I'm also part of the SDK & Developer Tools team for æternity's new blockchain implementation.

You: Previously?

Me: In 2009 I've co-founded ShareDesk / Optix and around 2014 I've started a mono-product brand called stood. From 2006 I've been relentlessly training as a professional computer user.

You: What!?

Me: My job is about helping businesses that need to build or improve a digital product, during these processes, you'll find my thoughts at the intersection of people, technology, design and new medias.

You: Ok, but what's your story, in words?

Me: I've started with Web Development in 2006 in Torino, Italy.

Over the past 12 years I've been working (mostly as a consultant) with perfectionist –Type B– designers, complicated –Type A– developers, and spent a countless amount of hours writing e-mails and attending meetings about planning, estimating, discussing (and mostly fixing) tech products with/for companies of any size.

I enjoy teamwork, i am capable of handling stressful tasks and i'm usually very intrigued by any new venture that i get to know or work at. I also occasionally give advices to early stage startups struggling to bootstrap.

My first venture was co-founded in 2009 with a team of friends and started to be recognized in 2012 as the Airbnb for flexible Workplaces, and it has been successfully funded, and its seed round ($1.1M) was led by Tim Draper's DFJ. Today it's one of the main players in the Office Space and Coworking Business, also offering a Smart Office Management Tool.

My second venture is called stood and started in early 2015. It's a wooden product (B2C+B2B) and early B2B customers include many Tech Companies and Events (exoclick, breather.com, google and more).

From 2017 I'm mentoring an Italian Startup, and from February 2018, I'm helping æternity building its Blockchain SDK and Developer Tools.

I'm currently working in Berlin, helping welance redefine itself as a multidisciplinary freelancers' collective.
