Me in less than 10 seconds

I grew up in Pavia, Italy. Over the years I've been involved with PHP, OpenStreetMap Foundation, Wikimedia Foundation. I've started a company when I was 21, then worked for several others, notably Boeing, and currenlty, Google. I've spent my career mostly working as a Product Manager.


I'm fascinated by: people, the rise of machine intelligence and AI, the upcoming autonomous transportation revolution and the electrification of the transportation sector, copyright laws, maps, data, the singularity, investments, entrepreneurship. I like to do: photography, eat and prepare good food, walk long distance (40km on weekends).


I'm currently living in Dublin, Ireland.
