My first steps
I grew up in Rome, with a computer by my side from an early age. What began as a game and a hobby quickly became something more, using professional software as Autocad, 3DS Max and CorelDraw and creating simple games in Flash.
I often used my design skills for my studies as Aircraft Engineering at secondary school, but it was clear that mechanics wasn't my true passion.
After school I studied to become a CNC operator, where I merged my computer knowledge with a practical field. This experience introduced me to the programming world.
Working in Rome
Whilst undertaking a course in 3D design I also worked in my father industrial company. These two experiences together help me to have enough knowledge and the right working attitude to start my new path as interior designer.
For the next ten years I worked as interior design in a small company. I mastered my 3D technical skills, learning new ones, and eventually becoming manager of the project office. Under unfortunate circumstances the company closed, but my diligence and professional attitude pushed my former-employers to ask me to join them in a new project: selling office furniture and providing design's services through a website: mobiliperufficio.com.
I decided to take the challenge and learn how to create the website by myself.
The graphic wasn't great, there were a few bugs and the query was slow, but it worked well, but most of all, I really enjoyed creating it.
After that I worked on a few other projects as freelancer, continuing to learn and improve my skills wit online courses and a of lot practice.
Moving to Bournemouth
In 2013 I moved in England. After a period of adjustment, I started looking for a job as front-end developer.
I started as junior front-end developer in a small company, then I moved to a medium size company as web developer and, at last, I worked as senior web engineer in a massive company. All of them had different technologies and working methods, but I was able to adapt, learn and deliver high quality work on all of them.
Big game changer was the the pandemic. I've worked from home from since and I've prefectly adapted at this lifestyle: more productivity and more family time. It is ideal.
