Life

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 cook some kick-ass pasta and lasagna. I might use too much sarcasm and even Italian poets' quotes on my website. I live in Berlin since 2011.

Despite my nerdy attitude, I consider myself a visual artist stubbornly in search of his 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.

I am currently and happily employed as Staff Engineer in Shopify.

I'm a passionate free software advocate, user and contributor. Some of my projects are accessible through my Github account (http://github.com/claudioc).
