Hi, there! Thanks for your interest about the human behind these writings.

I am a web application software developer, with a particular affinity for the Elixir, Elm, and Ruby programming languages.

I love human languages, too, particularly Japanese (I have previously lived in Japan for 10 years), and Italian (family background).

I am heavily involved in the technical meetup scene in Sydney, being a current organiser of Elixir Sydney, Elm Sydney, and GraphQL Sydney, as well as a previous organiser of Ruby on Rails Oceania (RORO) Sydney.

Mechanical keyboards are an awesome thing that I am too interested in for my own good, being a long-time Ergodox user. I am currently attempting to learn Plover stenography, which led me to add the Georgi to my keyboard mix.

I currently feed myself by working as a Principal Consultant for Alembic, where I make my client’s digital dreams come true.

This blog is entirely independent of my paid employment: my posts and comments are solely my own, and do not necessarily represent my employer’s positions, strategies, or opinions.
