"Ho per patria il mondo come i pesci hanno il mare"
- Dante Alighieri
I am pretty much your standard "Italian guy" (from Tuscany, that is): I have a thick accent and strong opinions about food and wine but I can definitely cook some kick-ass pasta and lasagna. I use too much sarcasm and even italian poets' quotes in my website. I live in Berlin since 2011.
I am a science nerd most recently fascinated by Math, among all the sciences. My dream is to find some nice relationship among prime numbers – which is quite a cliché, I know. This is what probably generated my other passion for cybersecurity, cryptography, cryptocurrencies, data privacy and related topics.
Despite the nerdy attitude I consider myself a visual artist stubbornly in sarch of his own principal medium of expression. I am an "OK" photographer, I can draw "OK" stuff, I have a good eye for film photography and design but apparently I can't naturally express anything better. Shrug.
Work & Tech
I am a veteran Software Engineer with over 30 years in the IT industry. I evolved with it and in it, although I am proud to be able to say that I am still enthusiastically learning and exploring every single day, no stop.
Nowadays my current focus –my specialties– are fintech, regtech, technical leadership, application design, system architecture and of course web development (my favourite tech topic ever!). I have familiarity with complex infrastructures built on top of AWS services (EC2, ELB, S3, Route53, RDB, SQS, Lambda etc).
I am currently employed as VP of Engineering in Remagine (go take a look, we build great stuff).
I'm a passionate free software advocate, user and contributor. Some of my projects are accessible through my Github account (http://github.com/claudioc).
