Automation Engineer

I believe in a world in which the human being and technology are in symbiosis with one another. I see a future in which technology is nothing else than a natural extension of mankind, without creating that sense of social alienation that we are used to feel. I hope for a Technology that supports mankind in its research of the answers to the deepest questions that characterize our existence.

Work Experience

My Interests

I have a lot of interests, basically I really enjoy to learn something new in every aspect of my life. I like playing a lot of sports like football, futsal, handball and the sport I'm playing right now is Ultimate Frisbee. I also love mountain and I'm trying to improve myself in hiking and climbing, but to be honest there's a long road ahead. I also love to read books, I read every type but I prefer to read Mystery and Horror genres and I try to avoid Drama and Romance genres. I enjoy myself also watching movies, I try to choose the ones which will make me think because I love the sensation of being without words during the credits. I have a special passion for bikes, when I was younger I wasn't be able to get a scooter, mainly for safety concerns, so I started using the bike to go everywhere, and now I'm sort of addicted to it. I also love to travel around the world, to understand how the other cultures work and to learn to think outside the region in which I grew up.
