Something about myself:

During my career I have worked in several different fields, from healthcare to academic research, B2B customer support, account management and an early-stage startup.
It was while I was working on my startup that I realised the importance of web development skills and during the summer 2015 I began teaching myself basic coding. After 6 months, while I was working for, I found myself struggling to reach the next level (back-end development) but at the same time I was enjoying coding in my free time much more than my job.
In June 2016 I quit my job at and I moved to London to pursue my passion for coding at General Assembly. It was one of the best decisions of my life!
I am now confident in working on full-stack, creating web applications from both the client and the server side and in a great position where I can keep learning. My next challenge is mastering Angular and start to learn Reach. Moreover I recently started to play with Raspberry Pi because I am fascinated by IoT.
In my free time I love to organise photo walks, run, read books (mainly adventure/inspirational books or essays about sociology) and discover the best indie/alternative rock or jazz/blues gigs in London.
Other IT competencies: Adobe Photoshop and Camera Raw, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Illustrator, web typography and creation of HTML responsive emails.

How much I'm confident with:

Ruby on Rails


What I can do:

Front-End Development

I'm confident in working with HTML, CSS and jQuery and I am currently working on projects using SASS and vanilla JavaScript.

Back-End Development

On the server side I'm working mainly with JavaScript using Node.JS, Express.JS, MongoDB and PostgreSQL. However I am using Sinatra for Ruby on Rails projects.


I believe that the Test Driven Development is one of the most important best practices working on large projects and I will focus on it in the upcoming months.


As Developer and Makers, I'm particularly interested in Internet of Things. I'm currently working on a personal Raspberry Pi project.

Accout Management

I worked several years in the B2B customer service and account management sector. I have a strong esperience in dealing with clients and developing strong commercial relationships.


As former professional photographer and photo enthusiast, I have several years of experience working with the Adobe Suite and in particular with Photoshop and Lightroom.


Yes. I've been around:


    Aug 2014 - Jun 2016

    As Accommodation Service Executive I had to build strong B2B relationships with partners, assisting them with rates and availability, selling strategy, and providing technical support.
    Later, as Partner Support I assisted hotels and accommodations during the registration process and performing the risk checks at a later stage. While the registration process was completed and the partner risk passes the risk-check, I had to assure that the contents of the future webpage were relevant and highly qualitative.
